Angry New to Fedora


Hello, I am currently a new user of Linux Fedora. I Have encountered various problems ranging from Inability to install new softwares and my CD player does not paly any sound when i insert an audio CD. Please can anyone tell me how to work around these issues.
I downloaded enlightenment but it refused to install prompting me that there is a needed dependency.

Moved: This thread is more suitable in a more technical formu like Linux-Newbie and has been moved accordingly to help your thread/question get the exposure it deserves. Member Intro is a great place to say hello, but there's better place for technical questions.

When installing new programs, try to use yum tool. If you download packages separately you need to get all the dependencies, what take some time (espacially searching for them). Tool like yum will do it for you.

when newbies complain about no cd sound, it's usually this.

in future, please search about a problem before posting as it may already be answered.
