installing XMMS without yum


Hi, I am new to Linux, I am using Fedora Core 5. I would like to play mp3 files. The computer that I have linux on is not connected to the internet (I am currently writing this at work as I do not have internet at home). How do I install XMMS or mplayer or something to play videos and music? Please be detailed as I am new to this. Thank you very much in advance.

Download this file at work and put it on your thumb drive, http://www.xmms.org/files/1.2.x/xmms-1.2.10.tar.bz2. When you get home move it from your thumb drive to your hard disk; your home directory is fine. Unpack the tarball and move into the top of the source tree
Code:
tar xjf xmms-1.2.10.tar.bz2 && cd xmms-1.2.10
Configure and compile
Code:
./configure --prefix=/usr && make
To install in /usr, you need to be the privileged user (root). Since you haven't told us what distribution you are using, I don't know whether su or sudo is appropriate.
Code:
su -c 'make install'
or if your distro uses sudo
Code:
sudo make install

you need to install GLIB before you install xmms.
Until you install and ur ./configure script goes well without errors Makefile would not be generated and hence u wud not be able to run make command.

hi,
why don`t install .rpm package instead of compiling it from sources?

Go to
http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/2/simple/2

check Fedora5, and type 'xmms' in search field:

you `ll need at least 3 packages to install:

xmms
xmms-libs

For example, pick one from the list:

http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat....i386.rpm.html

, you`ll see the list of servers where you can download it from,
and list of libs required.


For mp3 playback you have to install additionally:
xmms-mp3

xmms installation

xmms installation alone will not play mp3. you have install xmms-mp3-version.rpm alone with xmms-libs. refer below link for more information.
