Hello I hope someone can help me. I get the following comment in the
terminal:*"ERROR: libmp3lame >= 3.98.3 not found"*
Then:* "If you think configure made a mistake, make sure you are using the
latest version from Git. If the latest version fails, report the problem to
the ffmpeg-user at ffmpeg.org mailing list or IRC #ffmpeg on irc.freenode.net.
Include the log file "config.log" produced by configure as this will help
solving the problem."*

 I have no idea how to get the *"config.log"* and it doesn't look like any
one goes to the #ffmpeg freenode IRC chat.

Can anyone help?

I'm copying and pasting from *"
              * "HOW TO: Install and use the latest FFmpeg and x264 "*

I'm on no. 7:


git clone --depth 1 git://source.ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg

cd ffmpeg

./configure --enable-gpl --enable-libfaac --enable-libmp3lame
--enable-libopencore-amrnb \

--enable-libopencore-amrwb --enable-libtheora --enable-libvorbis
--enable-libvpx \

--enable-libx264 --enable-nonfree --enable-version3 --enable-x11grab

*sudo checkinstall --pkgname=ffmpeg --pkgversion="5:$(./version.sh)"
--backup=no \

--deldoc=yes --default

hash x264 ffmpeg ffplay ffprobe*

The error comes  when I copy and past enter:

*"./configure --enable-gpl --enable-libfaac --enable-libmp3lame
--enable-libopencore-amrnb \

--enable-libopencore-amrwb --enable-libtheora --enable-libvorbis
--enable-libvpx \

--enable-libx264 --enable-nonfree --enable-version3 –enable-x11grab"*

This is my third reinstall of Ubuntu because I thought I messed it up.
