Hallo, I need to compile this programm. Its called xwax and its a dj programm for linux, alternative to tractor for windows. http://www.xwax.co.uk/download.html
The thing is, that i need to compile this and i dont have any of that skills  Embarrassed.
The installation file has these instructions:

The recommended way to build xwax is to run "make" with your chosen
compile options, followed optionally by "make install" to install at
the given prefix; eg.

  $ make PREFIX=/usr ALSA=yes
  $ make PREFIX=/usr ALSA=yes install  # as root

If PREFIX is not given, the user's home directory is used and "make
install" does not need to be run as root.

Different audio device types are enabled using the compile options:


If you are doing multiple builds you may like to put the compile
options in a file named '.config' in the source directory instead of
on the command line. There is a script to generate this file; for more
information run

  $ ./configure --help

Compilation errors are most likely the result of missing
libraries. You need the libraries and header files installed for:

* libSDL: http://www.libsdl.org/
* SDL_ttf (sometimes part of the SDL package, sometimes not)

Optional dependencies are:

* libasound: http://www.alsa-project.org/ (for ALSA=yes)
* JACK: http://jackaudio.org/ (for JACK=yes)

These libraries are packaged with most Linux distributions and this is
the recommended way to install them.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, Thnx in advance for the support!

Hello la_monda,

for compiling programs you must install the following packages:  Wink

kernel-source, kernel-headers, gcc, make, automake

If you search for libsdl in package-manager you will find a package too.

Please also consider IDJC, for me the ultimate DJ application in Linux, and it is already quite some time available as pisi package.

Use the search option of this forum for the word IDJC and you'll notice
