OK..i dont have YDL but I'll have a go

Get the source package from here: (

If you unzip this file theere is a REAME.txt file with Installation instructions

For pykaraoke it says you need


A quick look here and it seems you will need to find PyGame and WxPython as these are not included with YDL.

I've never used a RPM based distro, but you can find PyGame and WxPython here

Once you have all of these installed you can install pykaraoke with
the command:
(as root)
python install

Finding it pretty daunting at the mo, (windows and macOSX, not a problem).

What books would you advise for a newbie learning linux.
