Audacity


I have been using Audacity on my Windows box, and am trying to get an install for Suse 10, but I cannot seem to find an RPM that works, has anyone had any success with Audacity and Suse 10??

I don't remember if I installed it from OpenSuSE CD, or it I downloaded it from http://rpm.pbone.net

> rpm -q --provides audacity
audacity = 1.2.3-11

If has a fairly long list of libraries that are required:
rpm -q --requires audacity

Did you refresh the source before attempting the installation? Maybe the package has been updated and the previous version (which is stored in your local YaST database) cannot be found anymore.

hmmm, I take it you mean the DVD that I used for Suse 10, that has to be somehow refreshed? I did an online update, now Yast will read the package, but still says that audacity is not in the package, I even tried a version for Suse9.1 When I do a search in YAST for audacity it does not find it, I dont think it came on my DVD

I tried a few other RPMs, same thing, I believe there is a problem with YAST...any suggestions??

Try apt for your online installations.

Installing apt:
http://en.opensuse.org/APT

Add the following line in /etc/apt/sources.list:

rpm ftp://ftp4.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/apt/ SuSE/10.0-i386 packman

Next (as root):
apt-get update
apt-get install audacity

I am running Audacity in SuSE 10.0 right this very moment, actually.

I installed it from the Packman repository. The key to avoiding that error on the Packman site is to go to the Installation Source panel and refresh the packman source IMMEDIATELY before attempting to use YaST to install a package.

You could also download the file and either use "yast -i audacity-<version>.rpm" or rpm -Uhv audicity-<version>.rpm"
( <version> is a place holder for version. You can use autocompletion to save typing. )

No, I was talking about the packman source.
