    cant play amarok


    i installed amarok using yum but when i tried playing any .mp3 file with amarok then it say the following lines:
    the gst-engine claims that it cannot play mp3 file.
    you may want to choose a different engine from th Configure Dialog,or examiine the installation of the mutlimedia-framework that tha current engine uses.

    but i dont know wat to do next

    If you have not already done so, replace your yum.conf file with the one on this page, as instructed on that page.
    That yum.conf file is tailored to fedora.
    Then, make yourself root (using the "su" command) and then run the following:
    yum install gstreamer-plugins-mp3
