The problem has been sloved by down the rpm and install on the FC3.

Cheers Dave

Hi, I looked at the rpm and it's only in i386. Is there another file for x86?

@djcooly, download it and run the RPM and you will have MP3 support in XMMS, the i386 is for your hardware...not software (x86) x86 is the X window management system....this has nothing to do with the MP3 support for XMMS.

You can also try BMP which is a fork of XMMS and IMO much Better Media Player.

just a note on the MP3 codec for XMMS...you need to type in "rpm -U --nodeps name-of-rpm.rpm" as root, for me atleast it would say that it couldn't find XMMS...oh well I have it working...now in the proccess of copying 15gb of music from XP box

Thanks everyone. Ended up going with BMP...I'm a newbie and this was simpler. Got everything working now! This was the final piece of my new linux system...decided to divorce XP a few days ago.

http://fedorafaq.org covers this and explain where to get mp3 add-ons. No need to use --nodeps or anything like that.

thanks for that as I was just looking for some answers because I've just switched over from mandriva and loving fedora so far (minus the frustration I had before finding this)

thanks again
