View Full Version : [SOLVED] Can't install Rakarrack 0.2.0

October 1st, 2008, 09:20 PM
I get this message from the package installer:

"Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libasound2"

I have verified that I have libasound2 installed, and also libasound2-dev.

Version is 1.0.15-3ubuntu4 and I am running 8.04 rt.

Does anyone know why it wont install?

In the meantime I found an older version, rakarrack_0.1.2-1_i386 (https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-studio-users/2008-July/002815.html)
which works, I just want the latest version :D

Rakarrack really needs to be in the repositories, it is so much better and easier to use than JACK Rack.

Someone may have built the .deb's control file to be too picky about the libasound2 version (using = instead of >=).

Just build from source instead. You'll need:

sudo apt-get install build-essential jackd libfltk1.1-dev libasound2-dev libxpm-dev libjack-dev aconnectgui
Then download and untar the source. Open a terminal, go to that directory and:

sudo make install

It worked like a charm, thank you so much! I now have Rakarrack 0.2.0 installed on my computer :guitar:

For those interested, the source code can be downloaded here: http://rakarrack.sourceforge.net/
