I feel I am obligated to correct you. Obtaining an MP3 codec is in not indicative of "cracking, piracy, warez, fraud" etc. Playing an MP3 does not violate a copyright. Furthermore compatibility with the GPL in the Fedora license does not prohibit users from installing non-GPL (or for that matter any) software in Fedora. It only applies to what software RH/Fedora will choose to RE-distribute.
Many people have asked how to enable mp3 codecs on LQ, run a search. Respectfully I beleive your answer was somewhat unclear if not misleading.
Btw: I should point out that you do have FC in your list of distributions you use.
thanx for noticing... yes i ran FC, and RH, but no, i do not use them. I like to test distros, it does not follow that i like to run all the distros i test.
In the case of your response, which i will take as valid, and thereby drop the subject of legality behind this issue, I will respond to the original thread by suggesting the user add livna.org to their yum list, and you should be able to find a package xmms-mp3 to resolve this issue.
