64 bit mp3 player


I'm running Fedora Core 5 (64 bit) and I can't seem to find any mp3 players. None come bundled with FC5 and the ones I have found via google and sourceforge all seem to be 32 bit only. Any suggestions for good 64 bit mp3 players (the easier to install the better.. still getting the hang of linux).

Thanks much,
Niaski

well I think the best option would be to get the source of some mp3 players like

xmms,xine,mplayer and compile them for your distro if you are unable to get readymade rpms for 64 bit edition

did u try rpm.pbone.net??

regards

I'll look into that, thanks masand.

But one would think there would be a ready compiled 64bit mp3 player.. hard to belive none exist.

you can get xmms, xine, videolan-client (vlc) and mplayer in 64 and 32 bit mode at freshrpms. I use mplayer and xine in 32 bit, and vlc 64 bit. The easiest way for you to download 32 and 64 bit apps is to install yumex and force 32 bit mode.

As I mentioned that you need to check out some repositories

rpm.pbone.net being one of them

check out rpm.pbone net

It contains the 64 bit editons for xmms and lookout for other players too
