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.

i have a completly fresh fedora core 1 installation...what do i need to do in order to play mp3's in rhythmbox..i have them working in xmms but i can't, for the life of me, get them working in rhythmbox...i tell it to load all the files in a certain directory and they don't even come up in the library
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.
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.
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

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.
