I am new to Linux Audio, Ardour Etc. I found Ardour via Internet search which made realize that Im sick of costly Windows and MAC software, whose companies contanly hound you for money, by allways leaving you 1 tool short "the one that will make there application even better". So Im gonna break with the "Status Quo" and go for the open source philosphy.
I recently installed Red Hat 9.0 but I cant intall ardour. I know noting about emerege or apt (looked on Internet but found noting concrete, tried installing an rpm of apt but it like ardour required other packages)
So I tried downloading the individual packages which were asked for when I executed the ardour rpm (as well as the requirements listed on the ardour website).
When installing these packages some of them will not work I get a message saying Could Not open package check permissions (the premissions are fine). Im sure I downloaded the correct type of RPM i386 for Redhat
Is there anyone out there who can help get me up and running with ardour?
1) How do I use emerge or apt. Do they come with Red Hat 9.0.
Im a not connected to the internet via my redhat linux OS, would this affect the use of apt or emerge?
2) Where do I download the required sound libaries and applications (note I downloaded rpm that did'nt work)?
3) What compiler do ye recommend for developing ardour?
4)I have a Yamaha AW 16 G hard disk recorder which I would like to connect to Ardour via MIDI. Is this currently possible?
Over the next few months I will hopefully begin to start contributing to ardour like you.
till next time
