Description of problem:

audacity should be built with mp3 support "enabled" so that the end user can
choose to configure it to use /usr/lib/libmp3lame.so if they so choose. 
allowing post installation of libmp3lame usage should not violate mp3
license.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Additional info:

I yumdownload'ed the audacity sources and rpmbuilt it with mp3 enabled:

rpmbuild -bb --with mp3 /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/audacity.spec

This allowed audacity to ask me to select liblamemp3.so for its use when I tried
to import an MP3. This gives the user the flexibility without forcing them to
make manual efforts to get this capability.

But now every time I do an yum update, the extra audacity overlays mine thus
breaking user chosen MP3 support.

I am forced to tweak the /etc/yum.conf to exclude the release audacity. This
makes the system messy and hard to maintain.

liblamemp3 is provided by user installed rpm and NOT audacity.

Comment 1 Gérard Milmeister 2006-06-27 23:32:41 UTC
The version from Fedora Extras uses libmp3lame.so if it is present for
exporting to mp3. It asks you the first time you export to mp3.
This happens whether audacity is compiled with mp3 or without.
However for importing mp3 libmad is required, which cannot be provided
in Fedora Extras. Use the version from livna which supports importing mp3.
