Fedora updates and MP3 problem

Just loaded Fedora Core 1 on a machine that was running redhat 9 Flawless. (Should have left it alone) Im having problems loading the updates Using UpToDate, Apt-Get And Yum . If i do the kerlel update with UptoDate it says the md5sum isnt correct fot the kernel so it has been tampered with or is corrupt and wont continue, When i do a dist-upgrade in Apt-Get it grabed about 135 updates but about 15 of them had bad md5sums also and wouldnt install, And that is also the problerm with Yum. Is there something i am doing wrong here? Has anyone else had the same problem? Also tring to load the MP3 pluggin for xmms has been unsuccessful. Always seems to be the wrong version, Or dependency is missing Then when i get it to load in finally xmms still just cruses threw the mp3 and converts it to a wav file in my home.. Any suggestions, I have used APT, Yum and have downloaded the RPM's manually and installed xmms-mp3 but still cat get it to work.
Thank you for your time

To see how to get xmms to play mp3 read:

I assume you downloaded Fedora from a US server (distributing mp3 players will get you fined - I think - in the usa which is why they cant make their mp3 player play mp3's by default!)

And up2date never works for me in fedora either (even if you have the latest gpg key set). But yum seems to work most of the time.

Good luck!,

there is always the option of getting the source code and compiling it on your machine. seems like an unnecessary nuisance with an RPM distro, but... it works.

that being said, i have installed mplayer to play mp3s. it plays them without installing any patches.

Well it must be possible to get a xmms rpm that plays mp3 by default. As long as the rpm is not downloaded from a server in the usa mp3 support is perfectly legal.
