that was a very bad answer...in fact, it wasn't a answer at all..

i installed the lib files to get xmms working but RHYTHMBOX won't work... i know it needs to be complied using xine or a fixed gstreamer and i got as far as it almost compiling, but it shit out and i coulnd't figure it out.

ive never been able to get rhythmbox running under redhat (i haven't tried too much) but a friend told me he had to download the latest gstreamer stuff, and it worked.

im installing fedora now, and i might actually switch to it, and im gonna hack around with running rhythmbox with xine support. its better with xine anyway.

well, i thought i had it

i downloaded all kinda of mad stuff (mad, libmad, libid3tag) and installed xine.

when i do ./configure --enable-xine it says that it compiles with mp3 support with xine backend. i think that means it will work. but when i do the make, it gets nasty errors. im going to continue fighting with it and see what i can do.

i put you on my buddy list, but didn't see you on

btw, are you contrasutra that i know???

Thumbs up Got It working

Didn't take much effort to get rhythmbox working in Fedora with mp3 support, download xine thru apt from freshrpms.net (including xine-lib-devel) make sure you got all the other packages you need and run ./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-xine

type make and it will work straight off

I'm having the same problem. RhythmBox will allow me load the mp3s into my playlist/library but won't allow me to play mp3s. I'll just use xmms to play mp3s in Fedora. For some reason Rhythm Box works in my Debian installation.

May be this thread will help you to get it to work, haven't test it myself.

It works! Just download the rhythmbox from freshrpm instead of using the one supplied with Fedora.
