Fedora Sound Problems


Okay I got Fedora Core 1, and I am unable to play music.

If I go to "sound card detection" and play the test sound I hear it fine.
However, if I try to play a music cd or MP3, it will play but no sound will come to the speakers. I verified that no volume control is muted.

Furthermore, is there something similiar to Rhythmbox that I can use to play MP3's?
Rhythmbox isn't compatible with Fedora unless your a programmer and you force it (why oh why did they include incompatible stuff?) and I want to play my MP3's.

Gstreamer asks for two packages when I try to install it, first being "libid3tag.so.0" and "libmad.so.0". It asks for those packages as dependencies. I've installed those packages over and over about ten times now, it still won't install.

Anyway I can listen to CD's and MP3's? Why does it have to be so hard?

Oh and where do I set the icon sizes for the icons on the Desktop under Gnome?

Thanks!

Hi There.
I think as in RH 9 MP3 is not supported because of license reasons. There is an rpm which enables MP3
Go to http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshrp.../linux/1/xmms/
and install xmms-alsa-1.2.8-3.2.fr.i386.rpm and xmms-mp3-1.2.8-3.2.fr.i386.rpm packages. That should do it!

Thanks anyway, but that didn't work. I already installed the XMMS MP3 thing without any errors, and now it plays MP3's but I am still not able to play music cd's.

I tried to install Xine like someone else said to in order to get rhythm box to work, but needless to say Xine asks for packages to be installed that I already installed some time ago.

It's like no matter what I do, the things I got to work fine in RH9 won't work in Fedora.

But thanks though.

J, I got CDs to work using KsCD on insert. It automounts and pops up KsCD on it's own. o.o

I'm going to try those XMMS packages, though. *prays*

Hi

I have exactly the same sound problem with Fedora core 2.

When i test the sound card i could hear an acoustic guitar, but it's impossible to listen to a cd.
I updated the last Kernel but the sound doesn't work anymore.

What can i do? does anybody have some advice?
