    ok, what MP3 plugin did you instal??

    If you have the livna repo installed into yum you just type

    #yum install xmms-mp3

    and it shoudl work fine, never had a problem with it yet

    Hi --

    I am extremely new to Linux. I banged my head on the table for about a week trying to get my MP3's to play. Finially I found a program called Audacity. (Free off the web -- though my system came with it.) If you bring an MP3 into the program you can export it as an .ogg. That seems to work better. And the ogg format seems to have very good sound quality.

    Good luck!

    I think both of the interested posters in this thread (although maybe not the one who is using FC1) may be interested in this site. If you have any trouble, try posting back here with error messages, problems, etc. By the way, it may be worth your while to upgrade FC1 to FC6. I promise it's not too much heavier than FC1 is. If you had a machine that could handle FC1, then it could probably handle FC6 as well.

    Try to mp3blaster

    This is a non-graphical mp3 player.
