    1. It might help to use something newer than FC1
    • 1. That's weird, you're sure you installed the xmms-mp3 rpm?
      You could also try installing LAME, that might help too.
      2.
      Code:
      rpm -ih <package>
      The -h isn't needed, but it does add a status bar. If you want to force it to install by ignoring deps, use --nodeps
      3. as for a command, depends on what player you want. MPlayer can play music files, but if you want a GUI progress bar/window, you should run gmplayer, which is the GUI version of MPlayer. MPlayer's better for video though, I strongly reccomend trying to get XMMS to work.


    -And it might be helpful to upgrade to Fedora Core 3, you never know.
