ok i just installed Fedora Core 3, and i wanted to view my NTFS storage drive for mp3's adn stuff. I got the RPM from a site but used the i586 one instead of the i686 like i should. I opened them with RPM default from firefox so i thought that installed them. Now when i try to uninstall it it says its not installed. But it wont let me install the i686 RPM because it says its already installed, which it isnt. None of the instructions i found let me mount the drive so i dunno what to do. I tried removing it with rpm -e and tried rpm -ivh but that wouldnt let me because it said it didnt exist. Can someone help me out??
ok well as an update i got the drive mounted and can view the folder as root or my user. But i can only open the folder as root. Now this is an mp3 partition basically and there are like 400 folders underneath the main one. How can i make it so my user can look at and play the mp3's. I don't need to write to the drive, just play the mp3's in xmms.
