MP3 using Up2date

I'm trying to use this guid to enable mp3 support on my machine. Whenever I run the up2date command to install the mp3 plugin, I'm told that the package doesn't have a GPG signature. In the part of the guide in which you are to add support for the repositories, I don't understand what is meant by "You'll need to add the second line to include the repository as the they work together hand in hand".

Thanks for any help

Up2date sucks with fedora in my opinion. Install the RPM file for mp3s to work

It is a heck of a lot easier and works great. I would stick to apt-get and synaptic for updating your machine.

I'm very new to Linux. Can you tell me how I would install the RPM, i.e. what "suffix" to use after rpm.
