Nothing to do
i get the same messages when i try to install some of the other packages listed in the fedorafaq:
# yum install gstreamer-plugins-ugly
# yum install xmms-mp3
# yum install kdemultimedia-extras
at work: i still have the following line for baseurl in the *.repo files in /etc/yum.repos.d/
but at home (where i have the same exact error) i have a local repository consisting of the files from the 5 installation disks [entire first disk, and the rpms from the rest in their respective directory]
so at home the baseurl in the *.repo files in /etc/yum.repos.d/ is:
i guess i have to download these packages manually to install them.....
this package is not on any of the 5 disks that came as the installation?? (the disks are at home right now....im not)
just for everyone's information: i initially installed fedora almost 2 weeks ago [had about 4-5 reinstalls] and i am still trying to configure basic things!!!
[modem, soundcard, screen resolution, AOL DIAL-UP [yea... i know], access to windows filesystem, playing mp3/divx, etc...]
SO I THANK ALL OF YOU FOR THE HELP THUS FAR!
