1  Linux Stuff / Linux distributions / Couldn't find package libmp3lame-dev on: January 08, 2012, 06:10:59 AM
I' trying to install mp3fs (http://khenriks.github.com/mp3fs/) and it requires several libraries one of which is libmp3lame-dev. All of the others install just fine but, when I run apt-get install libmp3lame-dev the package is not found.

uname -a reports:

Linux squeezeplug 2.6.34 #3 PREEMPT Mon May 17 02:15:53 MDT 2010 armv5tel GNU/Linux

Any help is appreciated.

It was the power supply. I got an external one, wired it up and the SheevaPlug is back up. It's been running for an hour without a hitch.

Thanks for your help.

Thanks radael & two9er. I followed all of your advice. I had kept the Linksys connector and traced which wire was positive. Just to be sure, I borrowed a voltage meter. Unfortunately, it appears the Linksys ps is dead.

I'm going in the next couple of days to find a new one. I'll let you know how it goes.

Thanks guidol.

I've stripped the wires on the Linksys. Which one is positive? One wire has a ridge running the length of it and the other doesn't. I've searched but can't find a definitive answer to which is positive and which is negative.

Any idea?

The power supply is out and I have an old router power supply that is 5V 2.5A. Do I just remove the connector from the router ps and the connector from the plug ps and connect the two red wires to one of the router ps wires and the two black ones to the other one?

By the way I don't see anything or smell anything that looks burnt. But then the ps hasn't failed completely.

Thanks again for your help.

@restamp

Thank you very much for your reply.

I got the Sheevaplug as an energy saver and a hobby device. I'm not an electronics guy and wouldn't do well with a soldering iron, so solution #1 is probably not a good choice for me.

Unfortunately, I'm not in my home country where I bought the plug for the next few months, so I won't be able to test solution #2 for a while.

So, I'll probably go with #3 if I can find an external PS with the correct connector.

In the mean time I'm using my big desktop as a music server and regretting the extra power it uses.

Thanks again.

Yes, I'm on a 240V line (in Vietnam). I also have an external USB hard drive but it has its own power supply.

I'm new to this forum. If the PSU is going out, what is the remedy?

Thanks.

Thanks for your reply. Both LEDs turn off. It's as though the Plug has been unplugged.

I'm pretty sure it's hardware because I haven't updated any software other than rescanning the music library in Squeezebox Server. However, as mentioned, it still turns off even with the SD card removed.

It's strange.

Thanks for your help.

I've been running Squeezebox Server on a Sheevaplug since July 2010 with no problems. Now it boots up like always, but after about 10-15 minutes, it unceremoniously goes dark. It has to sit for at least an hour before it can be started again.

I boot from an SD card but I get this behavior with and without the card and whether or not anything is plugged into the ethernet or USB ports.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
