blogdrake provides faac libfaac libfaac-devel for mageia2


you can use and modify the spec file from their srpm if you want to
package faac yourself

You can download the srpms from mageia2 for vlc quicktime gstreamer
audiokonverter xine mplayer ffmpeg etc... and rebuild the packages after
having validated the build with faac in the spec files...

after having installed the buildrequires for each of them...

If you need handbrake or cinerella you will have to write yourself the
spec files

The answer seems to be do it yourself !!!! (that's a repo for nearly 10
programs built with faac)

Waiting for a solution from Mageia, I kept my Mandriva 2010.2 on the
computer (with plf rpms),  beside Mageia, to work on multimedia files !
I know now that it seems to be a definite no go !!!
after having been told several times to wait for a new discussion about
non-free+tainted repo, I hear now that we have to wait until programs
are ported to libvoaacenc

Don't know if I'm gonna struggle anymore ...

Sorry I surrender !
