Can you please tell me where mpg321 introduces floating point
arithmetic, especially with this patch?? This patch sends mpg321 to the
previous state. Please take a look at 0.2.10.3 , 0.2.10.6. It has
nothing to do with the decoding of the mp3 file. For the audio dithering
responsible are the functions from libmad which uses fixed-point
calculation as you can see, audio dithering function does also. This
patch will avoid compilation problems for MIPS and MIPSEL architectures
, introduced by the use of mad_f_mul function. Please take a look
to /usr/include/mad.h. There is no difference by the introduced patch.
Package upload again to mentors.d.n.
