Does anyone know of a "short-list" means to get the Audacity application
to compile under Fedora Core 3 or 4?
Some of us in a group here have been trying, but the results either fail
outright, or have rather strange issues with the MP3 format. We know
that the "libmad" modules are done separately, and that the
modules are also required as
separately obtained modules for the link-stage. What we don't know is
why the simple compilation of an app from a
"trusted source" (sourceforge.net
) should be so problematic.
Is there a makefile which is relatively routine for this app? The
documention does not seem to mention any such thing,
and also does not clearly list any environment settings which are
mandatory. Audacity is bundled with the /Mandrake/ distro, but as many
of us know, that one is notoriously hard to "get under the hood" for
maintenance. As far as we know, only the app itself is bundled with
Mandrake, not any development materials.
Any constructive suggestions are welcome.
