thanks, muggins, but been there and done that with no joy. been looking around these parts, and elsewhere, for a few days now. might be time to find a copy of linux for dummies and learn how to compile myself. have tried a few times now and found it a confusing, frustrating and ultimately futile experience. thanks again, tho.

ps any idea as to why my [url] tags above failed to work?

Vala based Spek could be interesting...but not sure whether it has any gnome-based requirements. I'll have look later & see whether I can compile it. Compiling generally is pretty easy...(the only problem being that sometimes the required dependencies of a particular program dwarf little puppy!).

But if you do try compiling, and get stuck, just post a query & someone will usually try & get you past the stuck point.

thanks again for the speedy replies. have tried following instructions from this forum to convert tar.gz to pet to install from and ended up with uncompressed files spewed out all over the shop... very new to linux and have a lot to learn.
spek looks interesting but the page you linked to states that it "helps to analyse your audio files" with no mention of live sound card input monitoring which would mean having to record files before viewing. real time analysis would be preferable.

If you have a working Java setup then, this might be OK:

http://arachnoid.com/FFTExplorer/index.html

You would just need to download FFTExplorerApp.jar, then right-click the file & Set Run Action to java -jar "$@".

If you don't have a working Java it's probably best to search, in "Additional Software" section. for a java .sfs file, add it to the bootmanager, reboot, then make sure that you get a response from running java --help in a console. Then the above jar file should work OK.

Not sure whether this java-based one is relevant either?

many thanks, muggins. i found a java pet on the forum which seems to have worked and have just downloaded and run fftexplorer. success! seems to do what i want too, may not even need xoscope now. i didn't use the boot manager but thanks for introducing me to it, i'm sure it'll come in handy in the future. had a quick look at the laoe link and it seems to be more sound synthesis/design orientated but may be worth a play with later, tho i doubt this poor old pooter could handle it. thanks again for your time and effort, it's very much appreciated.

I compiled alsa-nyser, but don't think it would be of use to you. Also compiled gtkspec, and attached below. Run by entering gtkspec in a console.

typing gtkspec into the console i get this response:

debug: opening mixer /dev/mixer, record from 4096 () with
debug: opening soundcard /dev/dsp, sampling rate 44100, sa
r of channels 2
illegal instruction

i've checked dependencies with nothing missing. any ideas?

fftexplorer in java seems a tad shonky and runs quite slow so i'm not sure how much use i'd get out of it. i wouldn't mind taking a look at alsa-nyser, out of curiosity if nothing else, seeing as how you've gone to the trouble of compiling it. thanks again, muggins.

No, I'm mystified why gtkspec is crashing, as I compiled it on quirky1.3. Maybe download the quirky compiler devx, change directory to the gtkspec source directory, then just run:

Code:
make && make install


(I don't think I had to do anything else to compile it...I'm just wondering whether it's picked up some weird dependency from my computer...although you would imagine it would throw up an error message if this was the case?)

Regarding analyser, I've just zipped up the relevant files, extract it somewhere, change to the directory, then run:

Code:
./analyseur
analyser.zip

Would be cool if you succeed, such tool would be a good thing to have.
So do tell us if you get something working

hi guys, thanks for the interest, response and help so far - sorry for the late response - life has been getting in the way and some projects have taken a back burner. briefly looked at freq and was baffled as to what to do with it. have recently downloaded, installed and have been playing with lucid 511 which seems a little more stable, nippier and user friendly on my systems and have been learning a little more about puppy and linux in general. have even managed to create a multiboot usb key - may even post a newbie how to as i stumbled upon a very simple method after hours of futile internetting... anywayz... will be back on the simple oscilloscope/spectrum analyzer soon and will report back... off to play with lucid and must check out puppystudio at some point... ta!
