Amarok/Music Player on Fedora Core 4


Hello All-

I recently installed Fedora 4 because i was having seriouis problems with netowrking on Suse. I love Fedora because it has gotten my network card working lickety-split.

Now onto my 'Problem.' On Suse, there was a music player called Amarok that I liked. I have found it on the Red Hat ftp site and downloaded it. But the package is dependent on another rpm called "libtag.so.1" I can't find this rpm anywhere.

Can anybody give me a place to find/download this RPM, or can anybody give me an equivalent media player. (i.e. One that has a music library and you can choose which song you want to play)


Thanks-

This is not an rpm, but a library file. You have to find the rpm that contains this file. Fortunately, you have the package manager yum installed, and it might be able to help you with it. Issue the following command:

Code:
yum provides libtag.so.1
This will download file lists for you package repositories and find out if any packages contain this file. I actually tried this on my own computer (which runs FC4, of course), and it found the package taglib.i386 in the extras repository. To install it, issue the following command:

Code:
yum install taglib.i386
Answer y when it asks whether you want to install the package, and voilá, there it is.

Another approach that may be of interest: Just do yum install amarok. That's how I got it on my FC4. Amarok has become my all-time favorite player.
