"Fossies" - the Fresh Open Source Software Archive
Member "mp3info-0.8.5a/INSTALL" (6 Nov 2006, 2711 Bytes) of package /linux/misc/old/mp3info-0.8.5a.tgz:
As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard
) with prefixed line numbers.
Alternatively you can here view
the uninterpreted source code file.
1 Installing the Windows version
4 There really is no formal installation procedure. MP3Info is a single
5 executable that has no dependencies and uses no registry entries.
6 If you want to make mp3info available from anywhere on your system,
7 you can copy mp3info.exe to a directory in your system path.
8 This command would do the trick:
10 copy mp3info.exe %SYSTEMROOT%
14 Installing MP3info from source (UNIX)
17 Unpack and decompress the archive file, then change the current working
18 directory to the directory created by unpacking the archive. The following
19 two commands should accomplish this:
21 tar -xzvf mp3info-x.y.tgz
22 cd mp3info-x.y
24 Next, edit the top of the Makefile and make any changes necessary to reflect
25 your environment. The defaults are valid for Red Hat and Fedora Linux systems,
26 but will probably work for many others.
28 Next, run the following two commands.
31 make install (this command must be run by the root user)
33 If you want to install just the console version use:
35 make mp3info
36 make install-mp3info (this command must be run by the root user)
38 If you want to install just the GTK version use:
40 make gmp3info
41 make install-gmp3info (this command must be run by the root user)
43 ... and that's it. There should be a binary named mp3info and/or another named
44 gmp3info in /usr/local/bin (or whatever you changed the 'prefix' variable to
45 in the Makefile).
52 If 'make install' results in an error like the following:
54 install: cannot create regular file `/usr/local/man/man1/mp3info.1': No such file or directory
56 you probably need to go back and edit the 'manpath' setting in the Makefile.
57 The manpath variable must reflect one of your system's repositories for manual
58 pages -- specifically for section 1 manual pages (so specifying /foo/bar/man
59 would not be sufficient -- you would need to specify /foo/bar/man/man1 or
60 /foo/bar/man/sman1 or whatever reflects reality).
62 If you have trouble determining where your system's man pages are stored, try
63 examining your MANPATH environment variable or see man's own man page (i.e run
64 'man 1 man').
67 Installing the pre-compiled binaries
70 Run the following command as the root user. Note that you must have the
71 RedHat Package Manager (RPM) installed. If you don't have RPM installed on
72 your system, you can get it from the RedHat web site (www.redhat.com), but you
73 will probably find it easier just to build from source code.
75 rpm -ivh mp3info-x.y-z.i386.rpm
77 If you are upgrading from a previous version of MP3Info, use this command:
79 rpm -Uvh mp3info-x.y-z.i386.rpm
