Once again, Frank's post comes to the rescue...
Programs not included in Fedora
Good CD burner (it comes with XCD Roast but I prefer K3b)
To download and install these programs or any other programs you may want, I recommend using a program called apt-get
go to freshrpms.net and download the 2 files you need to run apt-get. They must be installed together for it to work. This must be done from the command line to work properly.
Here are the two files
download both of these, put them in a directory like /home/yourname
afterwards go in to console and type
su (root password) * no ( ) just type your root password
rpm -Uvh apt* *this will install both packages at the same time.
apt-get update *this sets up apt-get with the proper list of available software
now you can get a player for DVDs. Mplayer and xine are good for this so just use apt-get to go get it for you and install it. To do that type:
apt-get install mplayer*
apt-get install xmms-mp3
apt-get install xine*
aptget will go get the file, install it and make it ready for use.
If you go to the Fedora menu Mplayer should now be listed under Sound & Video as "movie Player" It will play divx, dvd, etc... you may need to change the dvd drive in it to the correct one on your system though in preferences.
Xine will be listed as xine in the menue
xmms will be listed as "audio player" just like it was when you installed Fedora but will now play MP3's as well. To play standard CD's you may need to change the preference in xmms. To do that open xmms
right click on it and choose options preferences
left click on cdaudio player and hit configure. change the play mode to digital instead of analog.
