Can't Encode Under Fedora 3
Hello all,

I d/l'ed the 1.15v encoder and installed it in /usr/bin. When I go to encode a .wav file, I'll use a command like:

$ /usr/bin/mppenc --xtreme file.wav file.mpc

I get the following:

Artist =
CD =
Title =
No# =
Extent = .wav
Year =
ERROR: Could not create output file 'file.mpc'

Where "file" is replaced by a real file, of course. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!!

Looking at tagger output ('Artist =...'), you're not running this command from /, are you?
Most probably you don't have write permissions to the dir.

Good call...I had permissions to the actual files and the directory they were in, but not the directory above that. Changed those permissions and everything works fine!
