Description Douglas Breault 2004-02-01 11:40:48 UTC
The mp32ogg ebuild should require mpg123 as a dependency becuase it is required to actually make .ogg's that aren't empty. It will run without it but all ogg's created will be empty and 4 kb.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge mp32ogg on a system without mpg123
2. use mp32ogg
Actual Results:  
It produced empty .ogg files

Expected Results:  
Succesfully converted mp3 files

Yep, the perl script relies on /usr/bin/mpg123.  The fix is now in portage.

It appears to be fine now. Thanks for the swift resolution.
