Has anyone gotten Audacity installed and working on Vector 5.9 RC3?

I have it installed but get the following error message when I try to run it:

audacity: error while loading shared libraries: libtwolame.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

any help appreciated.

Try 'slapt-get --install twolame', then '/sbin/ldconfig' if it still doesn't work.

Hmm

There appear to be two problems with the audacity package. It needs to add twolame as a dependency and requires an newer version of wxGTK than what that we have.

I have audacity working in VL 5.9 RC3

I got the same error installed twolame, made sure I wasn't running any music software and ran it, and have run it since no issue as long as I dont' have something using my sound card.

I only had to add twolame, and re-run the program. I did so with the terminal open and no error came up.

Shouldn't the package's doinst.sh be performing ldconfig? If not, I would be interested in learning more about the reasoning.

Just a hunch, But I know the media bonus cd has a newer version of wxGTK, and I'd bet that audacity came from it as well since much of what is on the CD is in the repos as well.  I'm guessing the audacity package was built against that version of wxGTK.

That's what rbistolfi thought as well.

I've got this kind of issue for other apps I have tried to add even though gslapt said they were installed...my most specific example I can recall is with ruby ripper, I'd heard good things about it, added the dependences I could via gslapt and when trying to install the check said they weren't present.  Same thing when I was trying to add VLC

I'm just saying I had the same problem although not with Audacity.

Does any one have suggestions to make installs more consistent and successful?
