Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Thanks for you prompt response i appreciate it.i already done that.i went thru konsole, enter root prompt and installed amarok but all to no avail. my sound driver is installed. there is a message about plugins. i used the internet to download everything well updated but no solution to the problem. Pls i need further assistance on this. Thanks
My installation of F16 has pulseaudio and that the volume is extremely low, so go to a console as try use 'alsamixer', push F6 and select the correct audio hardware.
Then you can up the volume. Use keys to move from one value to the other
You have already done what? What message? From which application? What exactly does it say? What is "everything" that you downloaded? From which sources? Please post exactly which commands you have executed including any error messages, around [code] tags.
thank you for your prompt response. however the is working quite alright its just that i cannot play music and DVD. I tried to install AMAROK but i got this error message while installing: --> Finished Dependency Resolution

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
[root@KESPHILS kesphils]. What do i do from here? pls help me out!
you might want to READ the fedora documents
the wiki has the instructions to BREAK USA ,UK, and a bunch of others laws in install the ( illegal in the us of a )
for fedora to include them would be illegal
"libdvdcss" is STILL ILLEGAL IN THE US OF A
Where is the 'I am not a lawyer' disclaimer? :P
Are libdvdcss and libaacs legal?
libdvdcss is a library that can find and guess keys from a DVD in order to decrypt it.
This method is authorized by a French law decision CE 10e et 9e sous*sect., 16 juillet 2008, n° 301843 on interoperability.
NB: In the USA, you should check out the US Copyright Office decision that allows circumvention in some cases.
VideoLAN is NOT a US-based organization and is therefore outside US jurisdiction.
libaacs is a research project and has an interoperability purpose (see above point).
Moreover, libaacs DOES NOT provide any decryption key. It is based on the official public AACS specification only.
Patents and codec licenses
Neither French law nor European conventions recognize software as patentable (see French section below).
Therefore, software patents licenses do not apply on VideoLAN software.
libDVDcss _may_ be 'ilegall' in the US, but its never been tested in court. Until it is, about all you can say it that you think it would be illegal if tested. There are some exceptions as well.
Section 1201, part of the 1998 Digital Millennium Copyright Act, provides that, upon the recommendation of the Register of Copyrights, the Librarian of Congress may designate certain classes of works as exempt from the prohibition against circumvention of technological measures that control access to copyrighted works.
As far as libDVDcss goes, the whole thing is just stupid. At least some countries realise this.
As far as I know, the open source mp3 etc. decoders have never been tested in court either. Same situation as libDVDcss, though not quite as stupid.
The only reason why more distros dont ship with libDVDcss and the open soruce media decoders 'out of the box' is fear of possible litigation. The chance of a private individual being charged and taken to court over libDVdcss or open soruce media decoders is (IMO anyway) virtually zero.
The easiest way to get the codecs you want is to install fedorautils. Just open up add/remove software and search for fedorautils in the search box. You get only one result. Check it and click apply. Once the installation is complete, run fedorautils. You will be prompted for a password and once you enter it a small popup screen comes up. Choose Essential tweaks ..... and follow the directions. Once the installation is done you should be able to play your media.
