Try Audacity... it's in your software repositories, so to install, open a terminal enter:
Code: [Select]
sudo yum -y install audacity

Audacity homepage:

Couldn't seem to find some files- but was downloading something that I should ahve stopped. Tried it again, and it tried to install (without having requisite files, I think) and then just hung. Sorry forgot to copy
the terminal output.. How does one install this directly- if it's right- newest fedora version:       http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=278793

I seem to remember, I tried this simple fix a long while ago and it didn't work then either

Firstly,your link points to the latest build of Audacity for Fedora 16 .. if Linpus is unable to install the dependencies for its own version of Audacity, you stand NO chance with this version.

Secondly, try this:
Code: [Select]
sudo yum -y install fedora-release
then
Code: [Select]
wget http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/updates/8/i386/rpmfusion-free-release-8-6.noarch.rpm
then
Code: [Select]
sudo rpm -U rpmfusion-free-release-8-6.noarch.rpm
then
Code: [Select]
sudo yum -y install audacity



And lastly .. I know I keep saying this, but you could install Audacity or any other software with a few mouse clicks in PeppermintOS .. lets count them.
Menu (click) System Tools>Software Manager (click) Searchbox (click) enter "audacity", select Audacity item (click), select "install" button (click) .. installed and working (and a recent version of Audacity too).

Maybe I have bigger problem- it did fall off desk 1/2M and clatter on floor 2 days ago. Here is output:
No it didn't copy.

On first fedora install, downloaded 3-4 files- then got a "segmentation error" on attempted install. Then when tried it again, it tried to install, and then hung again without finishing for 5 minures  till I closed terminal.
Have a feeling might have damaged or corrupted files- is there a way to erase what I did and start anew? Without risking removing vital system files, that is?  I don't understand a blanket instruction, like install fedora- release. Isn't that going to do a massive update, or only some newest files? if something does actually take several minutes, do warn us, after a minute or so w no apparent activity, I'm convinced whatever you're doing has failed.

Nope, that first command is only to add the fedora repository to your sources list ..

Why ? .. what's happening with your AA1 now ?

Well, it's just hanging (doing nothing for 5 minutes) on that first fedora install instruction. Everything else works fine. That just updates the newest files, right?

No it was supposed to update the key to the fedora repository .. maybe it no longer works because they've archived that repository, as fedora 8 is no longer supported .. if that's the case, I reckon you'll have major difficulty adding anything that requires dependencies.
