Hello everyone,

I've just installed the current version SlimServer on a SuSE linux box and it
works very fine. Then I installed LAME, version 3.95.1 (the latest).

When I try to play a .m4a file with the SlimServer, I get no sound. I ran
slimserver.pl from the command line with the --d_source option and here's the
output I got (see below). Does anyone have an idea of how to proceed?

The following set of errors repeat in an endless loop whilst trying to play
the .m4a song:
