Tuesday Technical Tip

I want to automate generation of MP3 files on a linux box- so I need to install LAME so I can do this via a command line.

So this is what I did

1 – First grab from the DAG repository the rpm for your distro:


2 – Switch to the directory you’ve saved the file

3 – Install the rpm – replacing the package name with the relevant file

rpm -ivh lame-3.96.1-2.2.el4.rf.x86_64.rpm

Tis done.
