After some considerable time, there is a new major version of Audacity – 2.2.0 – with a new-improved UI, amongst other things..
As I needed this ASAP, and did not want to wait for the (uncrippled) RPM to come out, I decided to compile it myself, with all useful options included..
I got the following error on compiling:
..... AudioIO.cpp:(.text+0x174): undefined reference to `PaUtil_GetTime' audacity-AudioIO.o: In function `audacityAudioCallback(void const*, void*, unsigned long, PaStreamCallbackTimeInfo const*, unsigned long, void*)': AudioIO.cpp:(.text+0xcb8c): undefined reference to `PaUtil_GetTime' collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status make: *** [Makefile:2348: audacity] Error 1
I tried adding an explicit reference to the portaudio header file in AudIO.cpp, but this did not make any difference.. After more research, I found that you have to specify –with-portaudio=local in the configure options. My configure options were then:
../configure –prefix=/usr –enable-shared –with-ffmpeg –with-lame –with-libflac –with-libid3tag –with-libmad –with-libtwolame –with-libvorbis –with-lv2 –with-portaudio=local –with-midi –with-portmidi
– and this now compiled OK, and (so far..) works just fine.. Not sure why this portaudio option was not the default…
