Hello, I’ve got Audacity 2.2.2 apparently beautifully running on CentOS 7.5.
I’m not a heavy user, but I do run a yum repository for a modern multimedia stack on CentOS 7 which includes Audacity - and Audacity was a thorn in my side because EPEL ships wxGTK3 which makes Audacity 2.1.2 difficult to use, and newer audacity needed GGC 4.9+ but CentOS has 4.8.5.
Well, spent the last week getting past that, in a way that makes it easy for users to install w/o the user needing to install software collections.
Gory details are at https://notrackers.com/2018/06/audacity-on-centos-7/
I’m actually about to redo it all - there’s a few issues mentioned there I want to resolve and also, currently it installs GGC 5.5.0 compiled Vamp Plugin SDK and Audacity into /usr prefix but I want to change that because I decided it is better not have anything with host system incompatible ABI calls in /usr and anything C++11 compiled with GCC 5.5.0 is ABI incompatible with GCC 4.8.5 (and vice versa)
So I’ll spend the next couple days sorting that out and recompiling it.
Audacity itself I might leave with /usr prefix since it isn’t a library with header files that other software could accidentally link against. But Vamp Plugin SDK definitely needs a prefix in /opt.
Anyway it is really nice to have a working Audacity again
