mp3 player for fedora 6

Hi there,
I was trying to install mp3 player for my fc 6, I tried this command that I got from some website but this didn't work and gave me following error:

[root@mave ~]# yum install gstreamer-plugins-ugly
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404: Date: Thu, 17 Jul 2008 15:45:18 GMT
Server: Apache
Transfer-Encoding: chunked
Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1

Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: adobe-linux

Can anyone suggest me what can I do?

I would probably try to setup a different repository:

Also, FC6 is rather old, you may want to consider updating to the latest release.

Support for FC6 was dropped almost a year ago. As a versions hits EOL(End Of Life) the repos start dropping like flies.

I thought xmms was dead? Audacious is the "new" xmms.

Yeah, If I were you, I'd update your system to fedora 9 - also you might
want to try amarok. I think it's brilliant!
