    Mounting/Playing Mp3 CD


    hello there,

    how can I get a CD containing MP3s to be mounted on my FC5 CDROM?

    If i insert a data disk containing PDFs/txt files, the CD gets automatically mounted itself and I can read its contents. If I insert the Installation disk of my FC5, it also gets mounted, however my MP3 CDs do not get automatically mounted.

    Ive verified the CD to be good...can play on windows.
    Also, what software application can I use to play MP3s, Mpgs on Linux.

    pls assist

    hi devils_casper

    thanks for the info...i'll google around for the FC5 rpm of XMMS for my distro, and have it installed.

    Another question: I run my FC5 on runlevel:3...booting up to the prompt not the GUI....

    What i was thinking was to install an MP3 player, and still be playing MP3 songs from the HD/a CDROM without the GUI....is this possible?....as in, perhaps I might write some script that would allow me to select which MP3 song/s in what DIR/s that I want to play, while im on runlevel 3.

    thanks

    ok,

    I downloaded "xmms-mp3-1.2.10-16.fc5.i386.rpm" from
    http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshrp...ux/5/xmms-mp3/
    with my initial reference as:
    http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mj...-fc5.html#xmms

    following the tutorial there: i get this error(below), after this command:
    rpm -ivh xmms-mp3-1.2.10-15.fc5.i386.rpm

    rpm -ivh -xmms.........
    Header V3DSA signature: NOKEY, KeyIDe42d547b
    error: failed dependencies...
    libxmmms.so1 is needed by xmms
    ok, so the libxmms.so1 is needed....

    pls can you help with a link to the FC5 version of this application, just to make sure i download the correct thing....



    ===
    another thing: I checked out my PC and found the ff: CD player, Helik, Movie Plaeyer, Rythmbox Music Player, Sound juicer CD extractor

    The CD player cannot play mp3S.

    An inserted VCD fired up Totem, however though the contents of the CVD was accessible, twas not able to play the CD.Helix player also resulted in an error saying it couldnt play, , and twas offering an advise that i should download reaplayer for Linux....

    pls advice

    hi Tokunbo !!!

    resolving dependency errors is very tough.....
    as i suggested earlier... use 'yum'... it resolve all depemdecies and automatically download whatever needed by main package...

    $ yum -y xmms xmms-mp3

    for VCD/DVD... use xine or mplayer...

    $ yum yum -y install xine xine-lib xine-skins
