MPlayer was compiled without libmp3lame support


[knoppix]
hi, i am trying to use mencoder to encode something into mp3.

my ./configure says this:
Checking for libmp3lame (for mencoder) ... yes

i configured both with --prefix=/usr

what other option do i need to have mencoder use lame correctly.

thanks,

Are you saying you compiled it with libmp3lame support, but when running it you get an error about the library being missing?

Setting prefix=/usr will override the default /usr/local. Are you sure you are not running another, maybe earlier, version at /usr/local/bin/mencoder?

Command 'which mencoder' will show actual path used when you run 'mencoder'.

thanks that was it. i originally installed it but read in the readme that libmp3lame installs in /usr so i reinstalled it (i guess i shouldve uninstalled it first).
