    Yes, you need the rpmfusion repo installed as well.


    Code:
    su
    yum install audacity-freeworld

    I assume that you are using Gnome.

    You will need to start audacity like this:
    pasuspender audacity

    You could edit your menu (launcher) and change the "Command:" field.

    Re: Installing Audacity with mp3 support

    Leigh, I'm still getting...
    No package audacity-freeworld available.
    Yes, I have the rpmfusion-free and non-free repos installed (as well as the test-updates). But audacity-freeworld just ain't there.
    I don't believe the non-free repo is available yet.

    Why post this in two old threads? One is not enough?

    Closed... Old thread and as much has changed since, probably irrelevant now.

    Please start a new thread with your issue if you are still having problems.
