Successfully Installed Rhythmbox!


I was finally able to get Rhythmbox (0.6.8) to work on Fedora FC1. I can't get the Internet Radio to work, but at least I'm able to play MP3s now. XMMS is still probably a "better" player, but Rythmbox shows promise.

Here's what I did to get it to work.

1. Added freshrpms.net to Yum.conf

[freshrpms]
name=Fedora Linux $releasever - $basearch - freshrpms
baseurl=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/freshrpms

2.
yum install gstreamer
yum install gstreamer-plugins-mp3
yum install rhythmbox

Note: You may or may not need libid3tag. I think I installed this on an earlier attempt at installing Rhythmbox. Yum might find it as a dependency and install it anyway.

Talking

For the first time I have found a good alternative to XMMS. Rhythmbox really rocks. The best thing is the TRay Icon. Although a plugin for the same is available for XMMS yet XMMS still shows in the taskbar (in KDE) even though the Tray Icon Plugin is enabled...

Good work ..... keep it up

It definately has great potential. I use iTunes on my Mac and Windoze XP, so it's nice to see that a application "similar" is going to be available on Linux. Of course, I'd like to see iTunes be ported to Linux, but Rhythmbox will have to do.

I don't think it sounds as good a XMMS, but that just may be me. I think it's partly because there's no EQ built into it. I dunno.

Development version 0.7.1 is available for compiling, but I haven't found any RPMs for it yet. So... anyone who knows how to create RPM packages...

I love iTunes for windows which i use. and wanted one for linux. I install Fedora and was surprise to see one like iTunes and said this is a must. xmms is the best but i need a nice library to manage all my mp3s and stream then a playlist.

Exactly.

Maybe XMMS will get a song management system someday. It would seem logical since users are collecting thousands and thousands of songs these days.
