Are you putting any special tags or such when ./configuring? Or are you just typing ./configure to start?

Only this first line:

CFLAGS="-march=athlon-tbird" ./configure --enable-nasm --enable-expopt

so I can optimised Lame to my CPU

Have you looked in the config.log file, created by the ./configure process,
to see the details of why gcc was not able to create the executables?

Hi Corin,

Update !

I've now got Lame installed & working fine via cl, but it won't work well with Grip CD ripper
I don't know why yet ? but I'm working on that next. Grip will only rip into wav files but not encode into mp3's ?

Also I counld'nt find anything the log file ?

Hi Fin!

You should not keep us all in suspense but tell us what you did differently to get LAME to compile.

As to your other point, you have not indicated what exactly you want to do with LAME, so it is difficult to make a recommendation othe than go to the LAME site

http://lame.sourceforge.net/links.html

and have a look at the links for

* andromeda (PHP and ASP) Dynamically presents collections of mp3s as streaming web sites.
* cd2mp3 : (Pearl) Script which runs daGrab and LAME.
* rip (Pearl) Script for ripping and encoding.

* avifile AVI/DIVX encoder and decoder for Linux.
* Grip : (Linux) gtk-based cd-player, ripper and encoder. Supports cddb, cdparanoia and LAME.
* jbm2 (Linux) A KDE Jukebox style application for public places (bars, pubs,...)
* Krabber (Linux) A KDE ripper & encoder, can use LAME.
* Mp3Maker (Linux) A WindowMaker enhanced front end to cdda2wav/cdparanoia and lame/bladeenc.
* dekagenc (Linux) Bourne shell script for ripping, encoding and CDDB naming.
* ripperX (Linux) GTK frontend for rippers and several encoders featuring CDDB support.
* T.E.A.R. (Linux) frontend to LAME, cdparanoia and CDDB.
* xtunes. (Linux) GTK frontend for LAME, MAD, cdparanoia, cdrecord and more

From the list, you should be able to find the application which does the job you want to do, and also the one which you find most comfortable using, which looks the best to you, etc etc.

Although it is still on my todo lists, xtunes is probably the most powerful ofon the list there in terms of what it can do and user interface.
