mp3 support for k3b audio CD burning


I'm able to listen to mp3s with xmms, which is great, but I'm really dissapointed at this *&%/# up mp3 policy Fedora has - great way to welcome newbies to the wonderful world of Linux!

Anyways, can somebody help me fix k3b so that it will burn mp3s onto an audio CD? Currently it does not support mp3. So I need to know:
- which package to install and where to get it from, I have Fedora Core 2wo and x86_64.
- who to install this package - I'm total newbie, I don't have apt or yum or whatever, or if I do, never used them...

If there's a tutorial for this or summin or if I missed a thread - great!

Thanx

From checking my K3b setup and a bit of Googling, apparently you need the MAD MPG decoder plugin. You probably also need the LAME encoder, if you haven't gotten it already. You'll have to hund down the proper RPM's yourself though.

Be sure to check out the K3b site itself, as well.

How is that supposed to help a newbie? I couldn't find anything to download from the MAD page. Apparently I have yum set up, so I could use that to install summin. There are several versions of k3b at the k3b site, but I allready have k3b 0.11.9 and I don't want to install it again, all I need is support for mp3, where do I get that from? How?

Thumbs up

Thankx, using the command line for burning was a lot easier than I thought! Ok, I'm getting the job done now with mpg321 and cdrecord (both pretty easy to use, even for a newbie), but not with a GUI. If anyone can help me get k3b fixed I'm still interested...

Still using Windows for my job though

Hoi!

I suggest to use the rpm.pbone.net you can search directly libraries (.so) and archives too. Be careful to download the same version of the package if you download the -devel version, else you can get dependency problems. If oyu have installed the correct package, but it still tells you that dep problems present simply use the --nodeps --force opt.
