Description Mike McGrath 2006-04-02 01:26:35 EST
Description of problem:

Description of RPM says it has MP3 support: 

Audacity is a cross-platform multitrack audio editor. It allows you to
record sounds directly or to import Ogg, WAV, AIFF, AU, IRCAM, or MP3
files. It features a few simple effects, all of the editing features
you should need, and unlimited undo. The GUI was built with wxWindows
and the audio I/O currently uses OSS under Linux. Audacity runs on
Linux/*BSD, MacOS, and Windows.

i don't know if it was intended but since the FE version doesn't support MP3
support due to legal reasons you might want to take it out as not to confuse
anyone.   No big deal either way.
Comment 1 Gérard Milmeister 2006-04-06 12:43:35 EDT
Ok, I don't know however if this is serious enough to make a new build...
Comment 2 Michael Schwendt 2006-04-06 13:00:30 EDT
It's a generic description of Audacity. Look, it also says

| Audacity runs on Linux/*BSD, MacOS, and Windows.

which is surely not true for the FE binaries. ;-)

Btw: s/wxWindows/wxWidgets/
Comment 3 Mike McGrath 2006-04-06 13:27:24 EDT
I was just pointing it out, maybe for next time (as not to confuse users) but
Michael's right its just a generic description and I'm sure users will find out
right away when they try to play MP3's :-D.  I'll go ahead and close this.
