    FC6 Music Players?


    I was looking for a great music player to install on my newly installed Fedora. I did try amarok, but the install failed. Does anyone have a reccomendation for a music player, want something with a library, similar to iTunes but not limited to that look. Thanks

    What happened to the amarok install? We can try to help fix it.

    If not, Banshee and Rhythmbox both have library organizations for the music. Both are geared to the GNOME desktop but can work under a KDE desktop.

    realplayer is a decent player for just playing an individual song.

    rhythmbox is good as stated before.

    Running
    yum install amarok
    as root worked perfectly well for me on FC6. Lots of dependencies to resolve on a fresh install (58 MB worth) but that was it.

    well, i am not using FC6 but i had FC4. why dont you use XMMS & then install an MP3 plugin for that, even binary of FC2 plugin will work (i did use it like that)

    yea, i did use yum to get amarok installed, thanks , whats more annoying is a sound problem. It is its barely there, even if i crank my speakers all the way, and when i go to change the volume in user administration, it wont let me. When I apply changes it just resets the volume to the middle? Any suggestions. Will have to check my onboard sound driver when I get home.

    ok well in an attempt to get some more help with my low sound, my audio card is Intel Corp. 828-1H ICH8 HD audio controller and the PCM device is ALC883 Analog, can I switch this to get better, louder sound. Or is there a way to modify something?

    Are both PCM and volume up louder in your sound mixer? It is very possible that your volume is up high but PCM is low which would cause low volume. Open alsamixer to check out the volumes.
