And you will also have to check the patch up whether it does a byteswap.

I did the same ivorbis-tool patch and compile for my debian-Etch LE and these were the gotchas:

1. The patch only works against the old ivorbis snapshot as posted here. Not against an actual ivorbis snapshot. So forget the 1.1.1 version and download the old 2005er snapshot from this side.

2. The patch is IMHO (or was when I did it) for the big endian distri and has a manual byteswap in it, which will turn your music to garbage if used on a LE distribution. I manually edited the byteswap out and then recompiled. Worked perfect then.

1. Unpack the old ivorbis-tools snapshot
2. Run Rons patch over it
3. It only patches 2-3 files. Check these for a comment “byteswap” or similar and remove the lines after the comment.
4. Do the usual ./configure && make && make install. Voila.
