Fedora doesn't have all video-codecs available by default (some legal thing), so you will need to download and install those missing codecs. Livna.org has support for so called non-free codecs, you will have to ad their repository data (http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release.rpm) to your yum installation to be bale to install and update them. Install the package with
su -c "rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release.rpm"

Google has some good infos stored at:
http://209.85.129.132/search?q=cache...=en&lr=lang_en

Note: the livna site is currently down for some unknown reason, but it was still running 2 weeks ago, so I guess this is just some maintenance or hardware problem - you probably have to wait a few days until it's up again.

well, the package manager still works for me and am still using FC5
It takes a while sometimes as I have a slow connection.
Somewhere there was a list of mirrors have been using them ever since.
It probably just needs libdvdcss

I think you just need to install VLC in Fedora 8, if it's still available in the repository.

In Fedora and openSuSE, I generally compile the latest version of Xine plugins from source to install it.

Another way would be to get the Xine RPMs from Livna or some similar location (just not the official Fedora repository) and install them using command-line.

you could download ALL the required rpm's then install them using rpm
or find ALL the source code for ALL the dependents and xine and build them

but i think YOUR FIRST problem to fix is this

can you post the output of
Code:
/sbin/lspci | grep -i modem
to see if it is a "Winmodem "( MS Windows ONLY SOFTWARE run modem) or not .
if it is a winmodem -- that would be a problem .Requiring you to have to build
"slmodem " software

if a reg pci card modem them "system-config-network" should work.

you might need to turn on "Network-Manager" and turn off " Network" in the system services. I think that Network-Manager was off by default in fedora 8 and Network is on by default for fedora 8 .
