Gentoo mp3 support


did gentoo stop supporting mp3? i recently updated all my packages and one of them was xmms and it no longer had mp3 support so i had to emerge xmms-mpg123 not that this was difficult i was just wondering.

Gentoo supports exactly what is in your USE flags. I run xmms without xmms-mpg123 and have no problems with MP3 support. Which xmms are you running, and what use flags?

oen more question. does your xmms use mpg123 because i added mp3 in the use flag just to see what would happened and it emerge mad and used that as the mp3 decoder when before it always used mpg123 and i didnt have to put mp3 in the use flags.

Well, maybe something happened then. In fact, 1.2.10-r13 DOES add an mp3 flag, off by default. I'll be adding that to my configuration. I use 1.2.10-r5 (x86 stable). Perhaps your amd64 install has -r13. Or are you using ~amd64?

Well, doesn't seem to be a bug, just a new use flag making it into the works.
