    get xmms to play mp3 s


    I installed xmms on my computer when I loaded fedora 3, so it doesn't want to play mp3s because of the whole patent thing. I saw on a post that to get it to play mp3s that you could go to http://dag.wieers.com/packages/xmms/ and download xmms-mp3 for your distro. I did this, but when I try to run the rpm by using “rpm -Uvh package” I get :

    warning: xmms-mp3-1.2.10-11.1.1.fc3.rf.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 6b8d79e6
    error: can't create transaction lock

    What does this mean and how do I fix it? (I assume it has something to do with verifiying the rpm)

    You should do this as root.
