[SOLVED] MOC (Music On Console) does not list .mp3s. Oggs play fine.
I installed MOC and am trying to play mp3 files. It does not even list them. It just shows my main music directory and all the subdirectories. On the otherhand .ogg files play fine.
I presume its not related to any USE flag or libraries coz, I have mp3, mpeg, ogg, vorbis, ffmpeg, etc in USE flag and have also installed xine-lib, win32codecs etc. Please note that the mp3 files play fine in Xfmedia. Only MOC has problem.
On MOC forum, somebody had similar problem (with opensuse system) and he himself solved the problem by installing 'libmad-devel' package. I installed 'libmad' but still the problem is present. I did not find 'libmad-devel' or 'libmad-dev'. What is the -devel or -dev equivalent in gentoo?

what 'mad'ness is this?
Yes, its related to 'mad' but has not solved the problem yet. Put 'mad' in use flag and re-emerged moc. Now, moc lists .mp3 files. But when I play a file, it says: can't get decoder... What else am I missing? Is there anything I need to execute once I re-emerge a package?
Also, why installing 'libmad' did not help?

I don't use moc I use mp3blaster as a console based player ... I'll have a go at setting up moc later on.

If you can do that for me and make out what worked for you, I will be grateful.
Just keep these points in the back of your mind:
a) now moc can see mp3 files but says it can't find decoder (before it could not even see an mp3.
b) mp3 is playing fine with Xfmedia all this time. So, its something moc related.
c) current system is x86 gentoo.
d) MOC works fine in my laptop with x86_64 gentoo.

I got similar results to you initially so I added to /etc/portage/package.use the following line ...
media-sound/moc aac alsa ffmpeg flac mad vorbis curl -debug jack libsamplerate modplug musepack sid sndfile -speex timidity wavpack
I tried this on my desktop system which is 32 bit.

The "mad" flag is all you should need for mp3, I am not sure what the problem could be.
Re-emerge libmad and try to use "revdep-rebuild", maybe libmad is broken or something...

Mad at mad... I did nothing and its working now...
Did rebooting do the trick(shutdown system yesterday night and switched on now. )? I had compiled Xfmedia after moc and it worked like charm without rebooting or even logout-login...!
Anyway, thanks for the 'mad' suggestion Jonathan.
i92guboj, 'revdep-rebuild' is not working. It says command not found. What package I need to install?
