[PlanetCCRMA] What to download?

   Thanks. I decided (for testing purposes) to blow away the whole Linux
installation and do it over from scratch. I'll choose to install everything
this time. (No big deal - I'm just sitting here watching 'Close Encounters'
again. Great movie!)

   This will also let me configure the AP2496 from scratch, without making
the mistake of doing the RME like I did last time.

   Should be up and running in 60...

Take care,

Hmmm, most probably you did not install the development packages, bet you
do not have gcc either :-( You will have to install that from the redhat
cdroms (or from planetccrma). I don't really know of the top of my head
which packages you need, I'll try to add a FAQ section with that next

"aclocal" is part of automake, that will be in your redhat cdrom (you can
also do an apt-get install if your network connection is fast.

But for ardour you will need a newer version of automake than the one that
comes with redhat, you can find it at:


It is not part of the standard planetccrma repository, just download the
rpm and do an rpm -Uvh.
