To compile Lame and Toolame for OS/2, I used EMX 0.9d, Bash, Sed, gnu-make, gnu-grep and a few other tools. For toolame, you also need gcrt0.o, as it doesn't ship with emx. If you are interested in creating your own build environment, let me know and I'll tell you what I'm using at the moment. To compile vorbis, I mostly just prodded configure till it worked, and commented out code that didn't compile (highly technical). If you're looking to compile it on a more standard emx build system, I'd advise using the source on Brians page (, though I'll happly zip and email you my build directories if you want them!


Once you've made your mp3s / vorbis's, you'll need someway to play them back. The main contenders (IMHO), are all avaiable from hobbes in
