Audacity install in RHEL6 missing libid3tag.so.0

I am trying to install
Audacity-1.3.12-0.6.beta.el6.x86_64,
from the Fedora EPEL for EL6, 64bit,
into RHEL 6.2.

The install fails, as it requires:
libid3tag.so.0()(64bit)

I've tried to get the libid3tag file using the Gnome package manager, but have so far failed.

I have also tried
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update libid3tag'
but the result was: "Error getting repository data for updates-testing repository not found"

I have located the missing libid3tag.so.0()(64bit) file within a package from, for example, rpm.phone.net. However:
- Is there a more direct/safer way to get the missing file within the Red Hat & Fedora universe?
- If I have to get the missing file from an outside source like rpm.phone.net, please forgive my total ignorance, but how would I get the file from that website to the place it belongs on my system? I've perused the rpm section in the deployment guide but still don't quite get it. Could someone tell me the steps, and/or tell me where the steps are in the documentation.

Thanks for any help.

Re: Audacity install in RHEL6 missing libid3tag.so.0

You can try the

yum provides */libid3tag.so.0

Trying this on a CentOS 6.x machine shows me that there's a package libit3tag-devel that should provide that library.

So, if you do

yum install libid3tag-devel

it should provide the shared object. Note that the yum provides */whatever is a good way to find what package provides something that you might be missing.

Re: Audacity install in RHEL6 missing libid3tag.so.0

smr54,

Thank you for your suggestion, which has led to a solution.

I tried:
yum provides */libid3tag.so.0
and:
yum install libid3tag-devel
These did not work, as the package was not found.

I also used the Gnome package manager GUI to search for the "libid3tag-devel" package. Not found, as me, nor as root. My theory is that the problem is I do not have the usual package repositories because I'm using almost pure RHEL 6.2, with its tightly controlled repository(s).

Anyway, desperate & impatient, I went to rpm.phone.net, found a download that would provide the missing file, downloaded, took the offer to open it with Package Manager, took the offer to install it.

Then tried again to install Audacity. Success! Audacity now running.

Again thank you for your suggestion as it helped me orient, gave me some grasp of the framework, and pushed me part way toward the solution.

Glad you solved it. Odd, I thought (but was possibly mistaken) that I'd found that package in the base CentOS install, which I thought would only have what RH would have.

Regardless, glad you got it done.

Rosbo1,

Is it possible that you can just send me the libid3tag.so.0 file as I am in need of it?

Thanks,

Arras

Re: Audacity install in RHEL6 missing libid3tag.so.0

Arras,

I wish I could help you directly, but I'm very clumsy w/ Linux. I searched for that file on my computer, but couldn't find it by the methods I know.

You might try going to an package source and looking for a package that includes this file and is appropriate for your distribution. E.g. try this link:

http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/se...&system=&arch=

It will give you a long list of available packages which you'll have to scan in some detail to select the package right for you. Then hopefully the download, opening with your package manager, & installation will go smoothly for you as it did for me.

Sorry, I think that's the best I can do for now. Let me know how it goes.

Richard
