XMMS MAD plugin compiling help
Hi. I'm quite new at compiling, and was wondering if anyone could give me a hand in figuring out how to fix a prob involving the installation of xmms-mad-0.5.1.tar.gz. (I heard that the MAD plugin of XMMS does wonders compared to the stock mp3 codec rpm, though feel free to advise me otherwise). When attempting to configure it (./configure), I basically get a long process wherein I can identify two major errors.
First apparent error:
checking for xmms-config... no
checking for XMMS - version >= 1.2.4... no (my version is 1.2.7 but I guess this doesn't really matter)
*** The xmms-config script installed by XMMS could not be found.
*** If XMMS was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the XMMS_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to xmms-config.
Doing a whereis for XMMS, I got the response:
xmms: /usr/bin/xmms /usr/lib/xmms /usr/share/xmms /usr/share/man/man1/xmms.1.gz
I suppose the configurator wants to overwrite XMMS' config script to make it use the MAD plugin that's about to be installed. I'm not quite sure where I can locate XMMS' config script, but if I do, can I solve this by adding a path line to .bashrc?
Second apparent error:
checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking for gtk+... yes
checking GTK_CFLAGS... -I/usr/include/gtk-1.2 -I/usr/X11R6/include -I/usr/include/glib-1.2 -I/usr/lib/glib/include
checking GTK_LIBS... -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lgtk -lgdk -lXi -lXext -lX11 -lm -lglib
checking for id3tag... Package id3tag was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `id3tag.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'id3tag' found
configure: error: Library requirements (id3tag) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
I performed a whereis for id3tag.pc and got the response:
My difficulty in this section is, how do I add /usr/include/id3tag.h to the "PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable" (I don't know what or where I can find this).
That's about all that looks alarmingly unclean with the ./config process. I'm running an almost complete standard installation of Red Hat 9.
