Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

"xingmux" gstreamer element not found, disabling Xing Header output.
"lame" gstreamer element not found, disabling MP3 output.
"faac" gstreamer element not found, disabling AAC output.
You're clearly missing a number of packages. What package manager are you using? For example to enable mp3 output do you have libmp3lame0 (or whatever your distro calls it) installed? Some other packages you may need: Depends: python, python-gnome2, python-glade2, python-gst0.10, gstreamer0.10-plugins-good, gstreamer0.10-plugins-base
"aptitude show" command does not exist in fedora but I tried a "yum search depdencies" and found a package "rpmdepsize" which shows the dependencies of any package I want, if s.o has the same problem, it can be of help ...
I try to check all the dependencies of soundconverter.
It shows that all dependencies are installed in their last version, so what?
I know that Fedora doesn't use .deb type packages and, therefore, doesn't use aptitude or apt-get but rather yum. In a .deb system you can find out that dependencies for a given package whether or not that package is installed. If you don't have the dependencies to a package installed either beforehand or with the package in question, then the package won't work. That's "so what".
