I have encountered very similar problems compiling ecawave 0.4.0 under
SuSE Linux 7.1
using qt-2.2.3 since it was not the default qt at the /usr/lib/qt
Finally after reading Zach's and Luke's hints and having manipulated the
script by hand ecawave runs and it seems to work fine with .wav input.
However, with .mp3 files the program exits whenever I push 'copy' or
while it seems to be forking processes. I tried to build a debug version
which succeeded but the problem seems to be related to the ecasound
library and I
do not know how to debug with a library.
Does anyone have any hints ?

I compiled ecawave and ecamegapedel last night on a rh7.1 and
some problems. Even after running configure, adding the options for
LIB'S & HEADERS the compile failed. The header for the interface.h file
includes the qt headers as if the are located in /usr/include. The rh
however put the headers in /usr/lib/qt-*/include. I couldn't be bothered
change all the headers so I just linked the files from the qt include
botch but it worked.
ln -s /usr/lib/qt-2.3.0/include/* /usr/include
I also did this for the qt lib's (eventhough the /usr/lib/qt-2.3.0/lib
already added to ld.co.conf).
ln -s usr/lib/qt-2.3.0/lib/lib* /usr/lib
Perhaps the rpm's you installed are trying to load libqt but can't find
Compiled fine and I made good use of ecawave for several minutes. Looks
pretty impressive. I couldn't get anything out of ecamegapedal It loaded
but crashed the system when I hit start after selecting analyse volume.
How would I specify the native alsa input & output in place of /dev/dsp?
Should the meter be working before hitting start?
