Editing music files


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'm using Broadcast2000 (noe Cinelerra). Does not look impressive, but can do many things. NOTE:It's movie software, in fact.

Get GLAME. Itīs a complete audio software facility. broadcast 2000 sucks nuts, and its actually a video editing tool moreso than it is an audio editing tool. GLAME is the GIMP of audio editing.

Problem installing glame 0.6.3

Ok, now I can't install glame...

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 .."

What am I doing wrong? Or not doing at all?

Any help and advice will be much appreciated.

Thanks
Joe

I'm reasonably sure there is a configure script, but I'm not at home at the moment...

Anyhoo I'll try what you suggested.

Btw, I thought that the d/l from sourceforge is pretty much the most up to date one you can get... Isn't that where the latest files will be available?

Sorry for the delay...

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?

Thanks
Joe

esd is the esound daemon. it's available from the gnome.org website. it's pretty common.

At long last I can post again...

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?

As always, all advice is welcome and appreciated.

Cheers
Joe

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
./configure --help
for esd and search for an option to use libtools (libtools can produce *.la files).

did you run ld after you installed libesd?
