How to install?
Hi, I'm totally lame in linux and I don't know how to install musepack plugin for xmms.
I have two files: libmusepack-1.0.1.tar.bz2 and xmms-musepack-1.1.alpha7.tar.bz2, I extracted them and I don't know what should I do with extracted files... Please, help me.

after extracting become root by typing su.
First go to the libmusepack dir and do a make install.
Then to the xmms-musepack dir and do a make install.
Now the plugin should be installed ;)

That's not so easy becaus after command make install I have response: make: command not found :(

I think you didn't unpack the archives or didn't change to the libmusepack directory.

bunzip2 libmusepack-1.0.1.tar.bz2
tar -xvf libmusepack-1.0.1.tar
cd libmusepack-1.0.1
make install

Do the same commands for the xmms plugin archive.

Mmmh, i he wasn't in the right dir or didn't unpack something like make: *** No rule to make target `install'. Stop. should appear.
But command not found seems like a pretty borked up system ...

Check if you have make installed by typing /usr/bin/make ... if still command is not found you have a big problem :(

I don't have this directory, but I don't think it's a big problem. I just have to install somethingg... but what? :)

OK, I've installed 'make' and i've tried to install xmms plugin... and I had an error again. This time I saw this:

Erm, 'Błąd' means Error :)

because you are building a xmms plugin you need the devel package with the headers, too.


apt-get install xmms-dev

How i must install last version which in .zip format.?

P.S. It's nice codec. I like it. ^^

Shy 12 November 2004 10:49 pm

Same instructions as above, only you need unzip.

Aliaric 13 November 2004 03:55 pm

I read 3 times instructions above, but there are no make file or configure file in .zip archieve. :? There is only mpdec

Shy 13 November 2004 11:25 pm

There is a Makefile, between idtag.cpp and mpc_dec.cpp, and as The Paranoid said you need to extract the zip to a folder and in the folder type "make install".
