After 3 years for using Fedora I am finally tired of rebuilding my system every year to stay current. So i am moving to CentOS.
I am trying to get Amarok to play my MP3's. I have it installed along with Xine but I cant find a repo that has xine-mp3 or equivelent.
I have the following repos installed:
Please enlighten me on what I am missing!
A little tidbit first, it's not a good idea to mix this many repors, especially atrpms and rpmforge. They don't have compatible packages. If you do mix them, proceed with caution.
Now, to your problem, I'm pretty sure that Amarok is built with grestreamer. Amarok is not in the rpmforge repo, but it is available in the epel repo. In order to get mp3 to work, you will have to install gstreamer-plugins-bad and gstreamer-plugins-ugly. They are both available on rpmforge. This particular repo also has xmms and xmms-mp3 available. Hope this works!
Ok, I just tried it. I'm also using Amarok from the epel repo. It is using the Xine engine. My mp3s play fine. Where did you download xine from? ATrpms or RPMForge? If you tried installing xine with all those repos on, there is not telling which repos the dependencies came from. Mixing too many repos can be a headache sometimes.
