Help with Protux Audio, MPlayer and GCC 3.4.6


Hey all... I have posted a couple of posts about my wireless network card and you all helped me greatly so I came back for more lol... I am very new to SUSE Linux so I will need some assistance with some of the terminology and all but here is my newest issues.. I have just gotten Protux an audio software opensource from linux.org and I am having a very hard time trying to figure out how to run it.. It said to extract to the /usr/local/protux dir and then to run it they say to type in ./protux from the dir, but I am not understanding this at all!! I assume they mean open the console and type that in so I did and I get permission denied when I type ./protux... If anyone knows this program or how to open programs like this I would greatly appreciate the help!! Also I just got Mplayer as well and I am having a difficult time with it as well, it says that I have to compile the GUI... I have know idea what they mean or how to even begin figuring it out lol.... Like I said I am a fresh fish Newbie lol!! I do LOVE SUSE though... The interface is awesome and it runs so much more stable then my Windows XP Pro it's not even funny lol!!.. Thanks, Like I said, I appreciate any help possible!!!

I went to configure Mplayer and it told me that I had to degrade down to gcc 3.4.6 in order to configure Mplayer... I downloaded gcc 3.4.6 but have no Idea how to install it or where it needs to go!! huh.gif I know your all thinking extreme NEWBIE, it's true lol, this is my first real endeavour into Linux but at least once I learn I will be able to help other helpless soals like me! tongue.gif

You probably need to make the binary executable. As root, try:
Code:
#chmod +x /usr/local/protux
This should work asuming that it was installed correctly. Usually you have to do more then just extract it to a folder. Most software require configure/compile first.

I'm not sure if I can help you with your MPlayer problem. It seems strange that you would have to downgrade gcc to get something to work. It's usually backwards compatible. I have no room to speak however, since I have gcc-3.3.6. I am not very familiar with SUSE's package management system but you should read up on how to install/uninstall packages in SUSE.

Here is some info on how to manage packages in SUSE:
The_package_manager_of_SuSE_Linux

You might also want to look into a SUSE package manager called 'yast'.

First, properly uninstall the unwanted version of gcc, then install the one you need. Let me know if have any further questions or do not understand something on this page.

ok I did what you said, typed in that command and still get the permission denied response... I went to the Protux website and it says that you don't need to compile, says everything is already compiled, just need to type the ./protux command... so I now am totally confused why it won't run even though i am logged in via the root user and all... I am open to suggestion if anyone knows of a better or equal audio editor with video incorporation software that may have better install or support options available... I also got SMART Package manager because some other forums have reccommended it and say that it makes it easier to install MPlayer but have no idea how to install mplayer with that lol... I got the .rpm version of MPlayer as well and it keeps telling me that I need about 8 different sources before I can install MPlayer, this is why I am told that I needed the SMART PM... Any ideas???

you might want to also try the long hand notation 'sh /usr/local/protux' instead of the shortcut './' notation. Sometimes this makes a difference depending on your system.

what is it saying exactly? use http://www.rpmfind.net to get the missing dependencies, if you are unsure of what you need, post the output of the error you get and I'm sure someone can tell you.
