Is Lame installed (correctly) ?


I have been unable to GRIP CDs to MP3s but are able to GRIP CDs to .wav.

So I thought I'd check that I'd installed LAME correctly from the command line:

lame song.wav song.mp3
bash: lame: command not found


So I downloaded lame again and following some instructions I did the following:
cp /home/stuart/lame/lame-3.90.1.tar.gz /usr/local
<FROM /USR/LOCAL>
tar xzvf lame-3.90.1.tar.gz
cd lame-3.90
ls
rename makefile.unix makefile
./configure --enable-mp3x --enable-mp3rtp --enable-brhist
make
make install
ldconfig

loads of stuff ran across the screen, so did it work ?? I tried the command line again:
ame song.wav song.mp3
bash: lame: command not found

any assistance apreachaited.

You may have better luck installing lame by rpm rather than compiling it.

The problem could be that the lame executable was put somewhere that is not in your $PATH, which will return the command not found error. If you want to use the version you compiled, find where the lame executable is, and put the path to it in your .bash_profile, which is found in /home/(name)/. Once you make that change, you'll have to log out of the box, then log back in. You don't have to reboot, but you have to have your profile reloaded.

Others here can probably be much more helpful to you on this than I was.

Peace,
JimBass

I think I now have a problem.

When I opened YaST I received a Dependency Confilict Warning

-lame 2:3.95.1-1 conflict
- Unresolved Requirments:
- lame requirs lame-libs = 3.95.1-

- Conflict Resolution:
- do not set lame to be Protected
- ignore conflict and risk system inconsistencies

- lame-libs not availabe
-Required by:
- lame requirs lame-libs = 3.95.1-

- Conflict Resolution:
- remove the conflicting package
- delete lame
- ignore conflict and risk system inconsistencies


When I initially tried to install the lame rpm it stated that lame-libs 3.95 was required so I have downloaded the file lame-libs-3.95.1-1.i386.rpm and installed it before the lame rpm.


From the actions detailed in my first post, do I have lame installed twice ?
If so should I take the delete lame option ?
What does th option " - do not set lame to be Protected" mean ?

Question

I have tried setting the two options:
do not set lame to be Protected
delete lame

but it will not unprotect or delete lame.

If in Yast I search for Lame / Lame-libs and select them for deletion I get an error message to say it fails.

How do I uninstall these packages ?

ANY HELP GREATLY APPREACHIATED.
