    freevo to start help please

    hi all i have installed freevo on fedora 5
    but when i try to start the app it tell me this error:

    Error: not found

    Freevo is not completely configured to start
    The configuration is based on three files. This may sound oversized, but this
    way it's easier to configure.

    First Freevo loads a file called 'freevo.conf'. This file will be generated by
    calling 'freevo setup'. Use 'freevo setup --help' to get information
    about the parameter. Based on the informations in that file, Freevo will guess
    some settings for your system. This takes place in a file called
    ''. Since this file may change from time to time, you should
    not edit this file. After is loaded, Freevo will look for a file
    called ''. You can overwrite the variables from ''
    in here. There is an example for '' called ''
    in the Freevo distribution.

    If you need more help, use the internal webserver to get more informations
    how to setup Freevo. To do this, you need to set
    WWW_USERS = { 'username' : 'password' }
    in your and then you can access the doc at

    The location of is /usr/share/freevo/
    Freevo searches for freevo.conf and in the following locations:

    Since it's highly unlikly you want to start Freevo without further
    configuration, Freevo will exit now.

    i am confused at what needs to be done here.
