    Installing WIRED .... dependency issues


    PCLinuxOS 2008

    ###################
    Could not mark all packages for installation or upgrade. The following packages have unresolvable dependencies. Make sure that all required repositories are added and enabled in the preferences.

    wired: Latest Verison 0.5-0.07423.2pclos2007
    Depends: jackit
    Depends: portaudio (>=20.0) but it is not installable
    Depends: libwired0 (= 0.5-0.070423.2pclos2007)
    Depends: libWiredAkai.so
    Depends: libWiredWidgets.so

    I would dearly like to have WIRED installed on my system ... however i get the following feedback from Synaptic when attempting to install .... and yes i have reloaded and upgraded .. *smile* ... and the only time i seem to run into installation problems using Synaptic is when trying to install a piece of software that depends upon Jackit ...

    Well in this case i searched for Jackit ... sure enough it was not loaded ... so tried to install .. it complained needed libjack0 version 109 etc ... and found i had to FORCE downgrade of this lib to satisfy installation of jackit ... so did that and then could install jackit

    However, now it says "Depends: portaudio (>=20.0) but it is not installable", let alone the other 'Depends' in the list .... i search for 'portaudio' and no such listing in synaptic indexes [oh there is libportaudio-dev etc, but installing does not help] ... and so i have no idea where to go to from here.


    So ... my question is is there anybody out there who either has had similar probs installing WIRED - any suggestions to help at all would be most appreciated. And finally ... its this damn JackIT thing .. it always gets in the way of a successful installation on my system?!?!?!

    Any ideas .. i dont want to be a Linux Nerd .. just a Linux user *smile*

    Thnx

    OK, so in the meantime i went to the Wired : Plug into the Free Music Experience - Home site and downloaded the tar.gz file for version 0.6 ... the latest. I followed the instructions in INSTALL and everything behaved without complaint until right at the end of the MAKE procedure ... where it spits out this complaint ...

    Both the ./autogen.sh and ./configure steps worked without error

    Has anybody got any ideas??? ... it seems it was just a breath away from completing the MAKE successfully

    Thanks Rfah
