If you're missing dependencies, then you must install those packages in which dependencies are contained. Upon installing these, you may find that they too require dependencies... It can be a real pain...

However, using a package manager, you can sometimes check an option that automatically downloads and installs all dependencies... I'm sure RedHat has the option somewhere, though it's been some time since I played w/ my FC2 box...

Here's a link to someone who's had your problem before... Hope it helps...

You might want to have a look at, and search for packages containing the file

I don't think the ID3 libs have any dependancies, so it should install straight away.

hey guys thanks for all the help. I'm thinking of why I didn't think of looking for an rpm which contained the file. I guess if it had said need id3lib I would have looked for it....
Anyway I got it and it seems to be working now

To find out which packages contain a certain library, run this command:

yum provides

This will tell you which packages have to install. You can then install them normally

yum install

I got k3b able to burn MP3s after installing k3b-mp3. I still cannot play mp3s with the k3b audio player. I know I can use another audio player to play the mp3s before I burn them, but it would be more convenient if I could just use k3b. Anyone got k3b to preview mp3s before burning them?
