audacity unable to locate required lib files present in /usr/lib/
I installed audacity from linuxpackages.net. Now when I try to run it, I am getting a lot of error messages despite of installing all the required packages. For example,
Is it looking in /usr/local/lib. That should not be the case with a Slackware package, but I do recall a similar problem with another package for this reason.
If the dependent libs are in /usr/lib, compiling from source with --prefix=/usr and then creating the package with checkinstall -S might save you time in the long run.
Anyone have a better solution.
I checked linuxpackages.net and they don't have audacity packages for Slackware 11.0.
Which package did you install, which audacity version ?
Which Slackware version are you running (11.0 I guess based on your profile)?
You are right, there is no package for 11.0.
I am using the following package
on Slackware 11.0, probably that is the reason why I am getting those errors. Is there a way out?
First remove the package you've installed.
Then install a 11.0 package.
You'll find a 11.0 package at this location:
Even if the site is in italian language, you can read that there are dependencies (dependenze) that are also available on the site (http://www.slacky.it). Just do a search with the box on the top left of the page.
Install the dependencies first in the order listed and everything should be fine.
I use a lot of packages from this site and if you follow the dependencies as described you'll have no surprise (except that it works out of the box)
