Mandrake User - Fedora?


I'm currently a Mandrake user, but I have copies of Fedora Core, and on my test PC I love it, and a lot. But, media support really bugs me. How easywould it be to get a good mp3 player and DVD player on it compared to the ease of that on Mandrake?

That's easy...

To play MP3's in XMMS, download this for Fedora Core 2, or this one for Fedora Core 1.
Then to install, simply:
Code:
rpm -ihv xmms-mp3-{version}.i386.rpm
To have a DVD player, install Xine, you can find it on http://freshrpms.net/packages/ ,just select FC1 or FC2.

The easiest way is to config yum or/and apt-get. Here is an HowTo.

Then you could simply use:
Code:
yum install xmms-mp3
yum install xine
And everything will install automatically over the i-net

As far as I know Amarok isnīt included in KDE 3.3. Iīm using 3.3.1 on gentoo and it at least doesnīt come with amarok.

...and I'm using Fedora Core 2 with KDE 3.3.1, and don't have Amarok too.
