Does Slackware have a shared mp3 lib?


a few days ago I tried out Fedora 14, but it didn't really live long. I'm probably too stupid to use it.. However, I have now Slackware on my netbook again.
While I was trying Fedora I installed Clementine and I had to install an extra mp3 lib (I installed Fluendo MP3) to enable mp3 support.

On my main machine I have also installed Slackware and Clementine and I can play mp3, so I ponder where's Slackware's mp3 lib? I egrep'ed /var/log/packages for "mp3" but I couldn't find any appropriate.

So, my question is: Does Slackware use a shared mp3 lib or is the mp3 support in all the programs?

Slackware uses libmad for mp3 playback support.

Also install lame if you want to create mp3s in Slackware.
