Fedora core (and redhat 9) does not come with an MP3 player out of the box. However, you can get mpg123 off a CD of an old version (I have a CD of v6 that has it)

Have a look at XMMS. I think its included and it might be able to play MP3s.

Also consider converting all your music to ogg vorbis - its a superior format.

ok, now i'm running under linux I can give you a better answer.

Under gnome, click on the G, then point to "Sound and video" then click "Audio Player" at the top of the list (not this is fedora 2, it might be different in fedora 1)

That starts XMMS, which MIGHT be able to play MP3s, I'm not sure.

There are a multitude of video players out there but by far, the best I have found is MPlayer.

Since you are using Fedora you have access to hundreds of pre-compiled software at http://freshrpms.net/ and can use apt-get to install them with. I would go to http://freshrpms.net/

May I also recommend this thread? -------------->>> Things a noob should do after fedora install

It should help you a good bit with some of the things you are looking for.

LOL! I am so sorry. I sent you to the wrong place. I have changed it in my previous post. Sorry, I use Slack now and put the URL for slack packages. I guess I had a 30-something moment

You need to go to http://freshrpms.net/

Once again, I am very sorry. Did you check the Fedora thread I recommended? It has 3 pages of great info.

Question

Just curious, I found the xmms-mp3 rpm and tried to install it, but the add/remove hardware program computed the package dependencies and said it needed but couldn't find xmms. The confusing part is, I have xmms installed, and it works just fine (except for playing mp3s). How can I have xmms installed, but the system doesn't know it's there?

If you download this rpm you should find that the "Music Player" (In the Sound & Video menu of FC2 - Actually "Rhythmbox 0.8.5") will then play MP3s. At least it worked for me (FC2)...

All the Best...

download that apt from fresh rpms that will save you a ton of trouble once you have apt installed type apt-get update than apt-get install synaptic which is a graphical frontend for apt. using apt an synaptic will take care of most dependency problems
