I am new user of fedora core 5.
Fedora Core 5 is too out of date to be useful. You should change to an up to date distro. "fedora" is up to release 8.
Please reread post #2.
But i am not able to play my.. mp3 and video files..
my sound card is detected but iam not able to play any music files..
fedora 8 does not play mp3 files because the codec is burdened by several patents. Using these formats can expose you to legal action.
Fedora will play music files which are not burdened. These include, but are not limited to, vorbis (audio), theora (video) and flacc (lossless audio).
It follows that the best approach is to transcode your music collection to one of these formats. A program which does this is called "ffmpeg2theora" and you install it with
yum install ffmpeg2theora
If yopen a terminal and cd into a directory which contains your music collection, you can:
now your mp3 collection is an ogg/vorbis collection.
rip all your disks to ogg/vorbis
sell your ipod and use a true media player.
Since linux is about choice, you can choose to shackle yourself to legacy, IP-burdened, formats if you want to. This will involve installing restricted codecs to your computer.
