Having trouble ripping audio CDs to mp3 with K3B (Slackware 12.2)


I can rip to .ogg no problem, but when I try to rip to mp3, it fails.

Here's the debugging output:

Code:
-----------------------
K3b Version: 1.0.5

KDE Version: 3.5.10
QT Version:  3.3.8b
Kernel:      2.6.27.7-slackware
Devices
-----------------------
HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GSA-H31N B109 (/dev/sr0, ) [CD-R, CD-RW, CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD+R DL] [DVD-ROM, DVD-R Sequential, DVD-RW Restricted Overwrite, DVD-RW Sequential, DVD+RW, DVD+R, DVD+R Dual Layer, CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW] [SAO, TAO, RAW, SAO/R96P, SAO/R96R, RAW/R16, RAW/R96P, RAW/R96R, Restricted Overwrite]
I compiled lame, but it still fails

Any advice?

Thanks


Edit:
Just tried ripping to mp3 with KAudioCreator and it works fine. But I'd still like to know if anyone has a solution for this problem I'm having with k3b

K3b uses the MAD MPEG Audio Decoder Library. Be sure you have that installed.

Thanks

I have "madplay-0.15-i486-2 madplay (MPEG audio decoder and player)" installed, is that it?

Yes. it is. And I had it backwards. MAD is used for decoding. Lame is used for encoding.

Hmm... Just a fluke... did you run ldconfig after ./configure;make;make install?

Yeah, I ran ldconfig.

Thanks for the reply

It looks like a lot of people are having this problem with the new K3B. Eh this isn't that big of a deal since KAudioCreator is working fine now that I installed lame. I could also just use .ogg, I really can't tell the difference

The stock Slackware K3B is kind of crippled. DRM compliant and all that.

For example. Open K3B. Select the Settings menu. Select Configure K3B. Select the Programs option. Notice the missing support features.

However, if you install these additional support packages, K3B will remain crippled. K3B does not find these packages on-the-fly in real-time. The solution is to recompile K3B after installing all support packages. Recompiling after installing the support packages creates the necessary internal hooks.

Use the build script in the Slackware sources tree.

After you install all support packages and recompile K3B, the program then works as advertised. One of the best apps out there.

Try downgrading Lame to 3.97. This seems to do the trick

vdemuth: I'll try downgrading lame, thanks

Edit:
It worked great!

I think I will take woodsman's advice and install those missing programs then recompile

Thanks everyone
