I've used Goldwave to edit mp3's in Windoze - y'know, lop a couple of seconds off the applause at the end, increase the volume, etc. But is there something similar available in Linux? I'd really prefer to NOT use the other OS.
I d/l'ed glame-0.6.3.tar.gz from sourceforge and extracted it to /usr/local. So now I have a directory /usr/local/glame-0.6.3. I cd into it and try to execute ./configure as per the instructions. It comes back with a message: "configure: error: cannot find sources (configure.in) in . or .."
I d/l'ed glame again and had a bit more success. The ./configure command runs but at some point I get the following error message:
checking for esd-config... no
checking for ESD - version >= 0.2.0... no
*** The esd-config script installed by ESD could not be found
*** If ESD was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the ESD_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to esd-config.
configure: error: GNOME needs esd library and development
I've searched the Suse installation cd's but haven't found anything that looks like it might be what I need. What is ESD and where do I find it?
Ok, since the last advice, I've installed esd (I think...) and got to the point where the ./configure seems to run quite happily. However, the next step (make), carries on for a while and then complains about missing libesd.la. Does this mean that my esd-installation was unsuccessful or what?
No, it needs to be compiled in a special way to produce .la file. I don't remember how to do it, so I'm not sure but run
for esd and search for an option to use libtools (libtools can produce *.la files).
