They loaded, but wouldn't play.  The same error I get when running the
versions from audacity.sourceforge.net.
 The dialog comes up saying to check the sound
card and rate.

That's what I've described in the original post (for example, I here
would need to choose a "Project Rate" of 48 kHz to be able to play a
44.1 kHz WAV file). And it's one reason why Fedora cannot upgrade to
these new beta releases yet.

Incidentally, even though the packages for audacity say 1.3.2, they are

# yum list all | grep -i audacity
audacity.i386                            1.3.4-0.2.beta.fc7
audacity-debuginfo.i386                  1.3.4-0.2.beta.fc7
audacity.i386                            1.3.2-14.fc7

No, the list is correct. Notice the right column (which you get when
you run that command) where it says "installed". Where it says
"fedora" or "livna", it refers to an uninstalled pkg in the

No, that isn't true.  I actually installed them and checked the help,
about for them.
They are 1.3.4-beta.

No, the 1.3.2-* packages really are 1.3.2-beta. They are included with
Fedora and Livna. You mix up things somehow.

And they don't work just like the downloads from

Right, because the code is broken. That's what I'm trying to prove. ;)

All is resolved for me. I had a copy of audacity in /usr/local/bin and so it was running whenever I invoked audacity instead of the version in /usr/bin. After removing that, the rpm that I built from your src.rpm now plays ogg and wav and mp3 files. i.e. your src rpm for fedora 8 works on fedora 7.

Thank you.
