    .omg is OpenMG file format. I use it for loading my Sony mini disc player, but only under Windows. I haven't tried to get it to work under Linux.

    What about winex and Sony's OpenMG Jukebox?

    .au is aidio. I think you encode the au files to .wav with sox, and then to mp3/vorbis etc etc

    Try to google a little, and I'm shure you find a way how to do it

    Per http://filext.com au is as follows:

    Extension: AU
    Program and/or Extension Function Company
    uLaw/AU Audio File
    Specific Notes
    Usually on Sun or UNIX machines.
    MIME Type File Classification Associated Links
    audio/basic
    audio/x-basic
    audio/au
    audio/x-au
    audio/x-pn-au
    audio/rmf
    audio/x-rmf
    audio/x-ulaw
    audio/vnd.qcelp
    audio/x-gsm
    audio/snd IrfanView
    Linux Player

    Identifying Characters
    Hex: 2E 73 6E 64 00 00 00
    ASCII: .snd
    General Notes
    Various programs use this extension; too many to list individually. Take clues from the location of the file as a possible pointer to exactly which program is producing the file. The file's date and time can also help if you know which programs you were running when the file was written.
    As for OMG is as follows:

    Extension: OMG
    Program and/or Extension Function Company
    OpenMG Jukebox
    Specific Notes
    (Sony's proprietary ATRAC3 codec)
    MIME Type File Classification Associated Links
    None

    Identifying Characters
    (None or Unknown)
    General Notes
    (None)

    i can't run open mg in wine and i can't run the windoze media player (what i used to play .au files in) either so does anyone know of a player in linux that can play them.



    On a different note... this is a totally noob question but i have to ask it
    whats the difference between source and binary codes when downloading?

    and on another note...
    i am trying to install a programme called stellarium (its a 3d renderer) but when i try to install i get
    "error: failed dependencies:
    XFree86-Mesa-libGL is needed by stellarium-0.5.2-1
    XFree86-Mesa-libGLU is needed by stellarium-0.5.2-1
    RESULT=1"
    can anyone help. the files arn't with the download.


    thanks very much for the help
    Thanks v much

    If you search here on the links page you would find http://linuxshop.ru/linuxbegin/win-lin-soft-en/ which has many linux to windows apps. Yours may or may not be covered.

    Let us know,

    Edit: fixed link

    I'm asuming your asking about RPM's? but this answer will cover all forms of packaging.

    Source is just that. the source code of the product your downloading.

    Binary is the final, compiled product.

    If you are downloading in RPM format, Binary is generaly safe. If you are downloading a tarball (.tar.gz or .tgz) then you want to look for source. and then follow the instructions on how to compile and install it.

    and for the second question.

    The program you are installing needs linux's OpenGL implemenation.
    use www.rpmfind.com to look up the lates MESA distribution and install that. in this case you need MESA libGL and MESA libGLU - so look for both packages.

    Also, check ot make sure you have the latest linux drivers for you video card installed. Nvidia makes this easy.. ATI... well... good luck.
