I have the newest version of Ubuntu 5.10, but I am using Debian by
Libranet, which is sarge...

I use apt-get, and synaptic, for most of all of my downloads...But
libmp3lame is not listed from what I can tell, maybe debian has it named

What I am trying to do is to just get mythtv-gui up and running, once
that is done, then I plan on buying the cards that I need, for a full
operation here...

At anyrate, I really need to know what files that I need for sarge, and
the best way to compile the program...

Thanks for responding back to me...
