MP3 Support in Fedora 4

Are there any packages available that will allow me to play mp3 files in Fedora 4? Specifically with Rhythmbox and XMMS. The 'yum install xmms-mp3' and 'yum install gstreamer-plugins mp3' doesn't work either.

Do you have the proper repositories enabled? Please post these files onto this message board.

All files inside of /etc/yum.repos.d/

I just upgraded from FC3 to FC4. I had the same issue. My solution: An older xmms (1.2-10) from an older distro. Worked like a charm, skins, plugins, all of it.

I think what you're looking for can be found in the livna repo for Fedora Core 4, here. You can add this repo to yum by added this file to the /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory, call it livna-stable.repo
[livna-stable] Fedora Compatible Packages (stable)
You'll also need the GPG key if you want to check you packages, with this command:
Hope this helps; post back if you need more help.

I just used this one, and it works ok.

If it doesnt, try installing the compat library to deal with the gcc 4 problem.

The easiest way for me has been the kde-redhat repo located here

All you have to do is a
yum update and you not only have the most recent KDE version but also mp3 and video.
