i have rh8 installed and i run the audio player (not remember what is the exact term, but it looks like the winamp in windows) for playing some mp3 files, but then, it fails to run. What is the problems?
I think you'll find RedHat didn't include the codecs to be able to use music and video files, eg .mp3. So you'll have to get them from other sites. Browse down this page to find relevent threads with the answer.
Or another way, that'll save you time in future is to go to freshrpms.net and get apt from there, install it, then use apt to get the plugins. In future you can check freshrpms for software you want, and use apt if it's available - will make things much simpler!
