I had exaclty the SAME PROBLEM: UNABLE TO INSTALL LAME
First of all, would you please excuse my bad English. Second, please note that:
- I am a newbie in Linux
- I use the netbook Acer Aspire OneAcer ,; which embeds a (lighter version of)
Fedora8; the device pleases me very much and gives me the will to go further with Linux
Fedora, though I feel a bit lost. This forum seems to be the first serious one I
I may have encounter the same _conflict_ issue, but it can only come from a contradiction
between the official Fedora repository ant Livna, as I have not installed any other
repository than Livna:
[root@localhost  lib]# ls /etc/yum.repos.d/
fedora-development.repo fedora-updates.repo livna-devel.repo
fedora.repo fedora-updates-testing.repo livna.repo
[root@localhost  lib]#
FINALLY, I downloaded the suggested rpm from http://atrpms.net/dist/f8/lame/
installed the required dependencies, and had no conflict issue.
I don't understand very well what I have done, and why it is so complicated, so:
QUESTION: could anyone give some excellent links to clearly written tutorials about how to
(properly) install software on Linux (especially Fedora)? And about that problem of
dependencies and rpm package (why isn't it as simple as it is on Windows?).
I bought a very nice book: _Fedora Linux Toolbox_, by Chr. Negus & Fr. Caen, ISBN
978-0-470-08291-1 ($24.99). But its level assumes the reader knows all that very well.
Thanks for your help.
