First of all, this is a very nice project. I think this
is a very needed application in Linux and I was happy
when I found it.

I would like to ask the developers to give attention
for the easy isntallation under Linux. Make binaries if
possible, rpms, debs

I tried to install it. I downloaded the needed libs,
the compillation and documentation of portaudio is a
joke. I don't even know if it was successful or not.
Soundtouchs comp halted with error. I know it is not
your fault, but without these your app doesn't compile.

So this app could be good, but it will be good only for
those 10 people who can install it.

Congratulate on the app, but don't forget about install.

Regards,
PeetAir

    able to apt-get install wired.

    Normally I have nothing against compiling my own programs,
    but in this case I agree with the person posting here.

    I have installed all required dependencies, but the compile
    fails with a huge number of warnings and errors all related
    to wxWidgets even though I have downloaded and installed
    version 2.5.3.

    I'm running Debian Unstable.

    Cheers and best of luck with developing what could very well
    become the best audio program for Linux.

    Hi,

    Don't worry mate, we're atm using the latest libs but some
    of them need a bit of tweaking to be used with WiReD.

    You have to compile portaudio without the Jack support (see
    configure -h) and to compile SoundTouch with float samples
    instead of int samples (read doc to modify the
    includes/STTypes.h properly)

    Then, it should work :)

    Cya !

    I could not agree more. It does not seem to compile with the
    current version of PortAudio (portaudio_v18_1) at all
    (because struct PaStreamCallbackTimeInfo seems no longer to
    exist there, not even in the CVS snapshot?). Furthermore
    configure does not check for the existence and version of
    the libraries as it should. I just gave up after fixing the
    3rd error by editing sources by hand.

    If you are not ready to release, don't. Provide CVS-only
    access and don't waste time of interested end users trying
    to install a pre-alpha version of your product.

    this really is just not warranted, i use many programs that are also linked to
    portaudio, and i do not wish to change it's behaviour based on the
    requirements of one app.. if you need hacked libraries, release them with
    your program and link to them statically, like cinelerra does.. it may add a
    little extra bulk to the program, but at least it doesn't require unnecessary
    mucking about by users with external libraries..

    i look forward to seeing this app in action..
    thanks..
