Goaster needs mpg123?


When I try to use gtoaster (included with red hat 9.0) to make an audio cd, it says:

"the filter program for the suffix 'mp3' could not be found on your system".

your current configuration is calling the following command to create the desired track:
mpg123 -r 44100 -s --stereo -q --"

I went to the mpg123 website to get the program, and download mpg123-0.59r.tar.gz to my home folder, now what?

Thanks

Well, you'll need to extract and install..

tar -xzvf mpg123-0.59r.tar.gz

Creates a new directory and from there you will want to readthe README and or the INSTALL file for instructions to install properly. If you need help, try looking at this thread which kind of helps out explaining how to install tarballs: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=45094

Open a terminal in your home directory. Type:

tar -xzf mpg123-0.59r.tar.gz

That will uncompress the package. cd into the folder you just unzipped:

cd mpg123-0.59r

Read the README file inside, and follow the instructions in the INSTALL file, which will probably tell you to do this:

./configure
make
su
make install


...but you should read the directions, because that's not always the case

That will compile the code into a program, and then install it, and then you should be all set.

Your most likely missing gcc clearly what the error states, either that or its not in your current user's path, gcc is the compiler to install source based packages like this one.

You'll need to get it from your Redhat cd's or download it from www.gnu.org or the like.
