I am trying to get it to make and am getting errors with the sound files.
I want to animate some work and am wondering how well it works.

Nobody has voted yet? People here are so indecisive. Smiley

I haven't yet built the GAP for 5.8 SOHO but I generally build it about twice a week for Slackware (from SVN). The GAP uses  'wavplay' for its audio output. WAVPLAY is an ancient tool that is more likely to be found on a ten-year old BSD system than any Linux box. It can be made to work on Linux -- I have done so in the past -- but unless you need it for your animations, it is not really worth the effort. My recommendation would be to pass '--disable-audio-support' to your ./configure and not worry about it for now.

I have 5.8 SOHO on a dual boot system but I won't have access to it until tomorrow. I will look into building the GAP for it (and even investigate getting WAVPLAY to work). If you need help before then, please provide a bit more details about the errors you are receiving and I will try to get back to you.

Thank you for the quick reply. I don't need sound at present so I'll do as you advise.Will report back.

As promised, the results were successful. I had to disable libmpeg3 as well as audio, but for now I'm good.
