Description

Using ANPM to install, I get this message:

[u'ERROR with transaction check vs depsolve:', 'flac8.dll is needed by fluidsynth-libs-2.0.4-1.pentium4', 'vorbis0.dll is needed by fluidsynth-libs-2.0.4-1.pentium4', 'vorbise2.dll is needed by fluidsynth-libs-2.0.4-1.pentium4', u'Please report this error at http://trac.netlabs.org/rpm/']

BTW, why does fluidsynth attempt to install automake. autoconf and other development libraries?

Hi David,

Will look at it asap...

I have to look @ .spec file why it tried to install those auto* and other progs for dev.
Afaik it don't need those a requirements...

Thanks! It looks like the new Flac wants to install development stuff too. On the other hand, libvorbis only installs a couple of text files....

Hi
Please try the just uploaded fluidsynth
I have remove from the flac the dev stuff

OK, thanks, install proceeds and completes now. It still insists on installing these development packages:

autoconf
automake
flac-devel
libogg-devel
libvorbis-devel
perl-Data-Dumper
pkgconfig

Seems these should only be required by the fluidsynth-devel package.

Now to try out fluidsynth....

Hi David,

The flac, libogg and the libvorbis are required for the Fluidsynth
The other ones i still have no clue.
Please try to remove the flac install and reinstall then again.

Uninstalled flac and tried to reinstall, but it still wants to install autoconf and friends.

Tried using fluidsynth and found it needs a soundfont file. Found one I liked (tried several), but it seems fluidsynth on OS/2 will only create a WAV file from a MIDI file - it does not play the MIDI file in real time. Maybe I misunderstood what fluidsynth was for. In any case, it would be good if an RPM could be created for a default soundfont file for fluidsynth since it is required to use it. I found the 'GeneralUser?' soundfont worked well...

OK, just tried this again and the situation is much better, but still some strange things. Flac-libs demands to install libogg-devel. Also, Flac-libs installs a big pile of Flac api documents that are completely un-neccessary...

the flac spec file is completely broken. This need a big overhaul. after that all issues should be resolved. When and if Elbert does it I have no idea, I just had a small look at the spec.
