Description Anton Blanchard 2020-04-10 04:15:25 UTC
Description of problem:

The gnuradio rotator block is broken in 3.8.0.0. I hit this when building a git checkout of gqrx using in a Fedora 32 container. Narrowband FM demodulation in gqrx is almost unintelligible. 

Clayton pointed me at:

https://github.com/gnuradio/gnuradio/issues/2748

The fixes are in the maint branch, and appear to be in 3.8.1.0.

Note that gqrx was only modified recently to use the gnuradio rotator, so this bug is not present in the Fedora 32 version of gqrx.

It seems that in 3.8.1.0 it just uses workaround to bypass the broken volk-2.0.0 code in the rotator block, but it should resolve your problem.
