how to install lame on debian?


Hello,

I want to install MPlayer with lame-support for acidripping, but lame isn't installed, so MPlayer messages:
Code:
Checking for libmp3lame (for mencoder) ... no
Hmmm, I tried apt-get install...
  • ...lame (no package)
    ...libmp3lame (no package)
But nothing works and "glame" & "toolame" are installed as well.

What are the packages I need, yet? Still lame doesn't seem to be installed, but what's the name of that package ON DEBIAN?
On Fedora they are called "lame" and "lame-devel"...
Every advise will be appreciated...thanks

The method to find packages is
apt-cache search foobar
where foobar is a string that you believe is in the package name or description.

HTH,

Firstly thanks.

I already installed all the packages I found by "apt-cache search lame"...

Still lame is NOT installed... how can I install "libmp3lame" on Debian?

I'm not using Debian, so I can't help much further. You may have to install lame and the library manually, i.e. compile it from source. You can find the lame source at http://lame.sourceforge.net/

Thanks. I'm sorry, but where could you download a tar.gz-file there on that page? There isn't a possibility to download anything...can't find, sorry

You may need to add the famous "marillat" repository to your /etc/apt/sources.list

I think the line you will need is

deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ testing main

You could also visit www.apt-get.org and search for lame to find other repositories.

hehe... we'll get you there somehow.

as with your video codec problem, that list is populated from "mencoder -oac help" and that particular test is looknig for the entry "mp3lame"

Thanks.
Code:
Available codecs:
   copy     - frame copy, without re-encoding (useful for AC3)
   pcm      - uncompressed PCM audio
   lavc     - FFmpeg audio encoder (MP2, AC3, ...)
Well, there aren't much and mp3lib isn't listed.

But which packages have I gotto have installed for compiling mplayer successfull with mp3-support???

Isn't there a list or something like that for that.
BTW: This time, the Path's are really well...

well this is totally truely an mplayer issue, and nothign to do with acidrip. the lavc codecs can do mp3 too though, so you don't actually NEED mp3lame to get mp3 streams, but it's advised.

@acid_knewbie:
Code:

Doesn't that mean that mplayer did find his mp3-support?

BTW: Which Distri do you use?

That looks like success to me. Everything working, then?
