Users compiling Audacity from source code can similarly remove the "Libraries" Preferences by configuring Audacity with .
Then build Audacity linked to the system LAME (and also to system or locally-compiled FFmpeg or libav if required).
The default entry is selected by a configured pattern (glob) or an on-screen menu. The kernel parameters for scenarios such as LVM, LUKS or dm-crypt can be found on the relevant pages.
In part one I wrote about Legacy systems in general and showed a Free BSD 4.11 installation for those of my readers who are interested in software history.
We could just change the PATH variable but it’s better to make the changes persistent. This is what we currently have: We’re on 4.11-RELEASE. This old release has a very old port for subversion but that’s fair enough.
So let’s add the two new paths in the shell’s rc file in front of the others: # pkg_info bootstrap-mk-files-20061111 *files for the bootstrap bmake utility bmake-20051105nb3 Portable (autoconf) version of Net BSD 'make' utility tnftp-20050625nb1 The enhanced FTP client in Net BSD mtree-20070710 Utility for mapping and checking directory hierarchies pax-20060202nb1 POSIX standard archiver with many extensions pkg_install-20070710 Package management and administration tools for pkgsrc Excellent! The latest code for each release cycle is always in the -STABLE branch. There are a few source tarballs that are no longer available from the mirrors that pkgsrc knew for them.
It is often most convenient to install the "Ubuntu Restricted Extras" as this includes LAME, FFmpeg and other useful media encoding/decoding tools.Open that package manager, search for LAME, and install it if it is not already installed.If there is not a LAME package for your distribution, go to the LAME Project home page and download the latest source code. When Audacity prompts you for it, it will be at /usr/local/lib/libmp3 Inexperienced users are advised to look for a LAME package for their distribution.Now we have a working replacement for Free BSD’s dead ports tree. Believe it or not: The latest code change was in April of 2014! Not a big problem, we can download those manually: # cd /usr/pkgsrc/07/distfiles # fetch # fetch # fetch Various dependencies will be downloaded, built and installed.This is definitely something that we can build upon. The traditional way of getting Free BSD code was over CVS. Free BSD migrated from CVS to SVN (subversion) in 2008. Eventually subversion will be installed and available on the system.We’re going to get 2007Q2 instead, though, since we need things that won’t work on Free BSD 4.11 with later versions.Oh, and if you’re not familiar with CVS, don’t worry. Just copy the commands that I prepared for you and you’re good to go: Pkgsrc 2007Q2 bootstrap complete! We just need to adjust the path variable so that the system picks up binaries from the new paths (and make those take precedence over the old system binaries).The minimum recommended version of Audacity for Linux is 2.1.2 Note that this Manual only relates to the current release of Audacity.We recommend using the latest version of GNU/Linux from your distribution that is compatible with your hardware specifications.Note carefully that simply re-installing Audacity will not clear and reset your Audacity settings for preferences and plug-ins.For instructions on how to achieve this please see Reset Audacity Settings.
