Has anyone been able to get any of these guitar tuners to work? I have had no luck at all. I tried almost all of them. k3guitune is one example where I recompiled several a time or two. But when I run it from the command line, all it does is say something about /dev/dsp initializing. I got an error once when trying to install an rpm that was along the lines of missing. I have the nvidia drivers installed on the mulitmedia kernel for mdk 9.1 I did a rpm -ivh --nodeps and thats I get no window pops up when I run the program. Anyone have any suggestions? I did get one to bring up a window if i remember, before I installed the mulitmedia kernel and nvidia drivers. But that was before I figured out that, i had my mic plugged into the wrong jack on my sound card. I could have swore it was the blue jack(line in), but it was the red/pink one(mic)(sblive value).

If you just want to record from microphone then SoundStudio works.

You can find it here:

For a tuner I like GUITune
And I like Audacity for a semi-pro recording and mixing environment.
