RPM's in Fedora Core 2


Hey,

I've just installed Fedora Core 2.

Theres a few problems. I installed everything, yet the graphical RPM manager i used in RedHat 9 is no where to be found. Where can I find it?

I've been using YUM, however when I try and install the Mp3 support RPM this is what I get.

[sergeantroach@localhost sergeantroach]$ cd /home/sergeantroach/Downloads
[sergeantroach@localhost Downloads]$ dir
xmms-1.2.10-1.i386.rpm xmms-mp3-1.2.10-0.lvn.2.2.i386.rpm yum.conf
xmms-1.2.10-2.2.p.1.fc2.fr.i386.rpm xmms-musepack-1.00-1.1.fc2.fr.i386.rpm
[sergeantroach@localhost Downloads]$ yum xmms-mp3-1.2.10-0.lvn.2.2.i386.rpm

Usage: yum [options] <update | upgrade | install | info | remove | list |
clean | provides | search | check-update | groupinstall | groupupdate |
grouplist >

Options:
-c [config file] - specify the config file to use
-e [error level] - set the error logging level
-d [debug level] - set the debugging level
-y answer yes to all questions
-t be tolerant about errors in package commands
-R [time in minutes] - set the max amount of time to randomly run in.
-C run from cache only - do not update the cache
--installroot=[path] - set the install root (default '/')
--version - output the version of yum
--exclude=some_pkg_name - packagename to exclude - you can use
this more than once
--download-only - only download packages - do not run the transaction
-h, --help this screen

[sergeantroach@localhost Downloads]$



I've tried
[sergeantroach@localhost Downloads]$ yum install " xmms-mp3-1.2.10-0.lvn.2.2.i386.rpm"

"[root@localhost Downloads]$ yum i xmms-mp3-1.2.10-0.lvn.2.2.i386.rpm"

Pretty much every combiation, but none seem to install the... $$%^$^ ........ah...RPM.
Any ideas? I'd love the old RPM manager with a GUI...

The test sound worked during set-up. however audio CD's produce no sound, and in the sound set up, when I click play test sound there is again, no sound.

I've tried using ALSA, Artsd, ESD, and OSS. None of them prodice a sound.

If anyone could help I'd be grateful. Please respond ASAP because I'm going to go insane without music :P

Thanks.

You should be able to open up a console window and type in "rpm -ivh packagename.rpm" without the quotes and it should install away. Hope that helps!

Have you checked to see if your soundcard (or onboard according to your sig) is compatible with Linux? Or is there any kind of conflicts going on? (IRQ,etc.) Just a few things off the top of my head. Have you tried playing a cd? Also, you can install apt-get for fedora and grab a program called Synaptic. It's a graphical front end to apt-get and you can search for all sorts of audio tools/players/etc. Hope that helps you out!

Hmm...weird. I am far from a Linux audio guru, so my thoughts are a shot in the dark. Have you tried rerunning the soundcard detection utility? I think it's under System Settings under KDE. You normally shouldn't have to do this, but also, have you tried a reboot? I know it's Linux, but I have had some things clear up after a reboot. (Granted they were VERY FEW AND VERY FAR BETWEEN), but just a thought. Try those out and let me know!

The only sound thing in there is "Soundcard detection".

It plays a test sound, same as in the installation, only I can't hear it.

If i click I could hear it nothing happends.

If I click I couldn't ...it says.

"Automatic detection of the sound card did not work. Audio will not be avalible on this system. Please click OK to continue."

Well it worked in that dialog during installation, but since then, no sound.

Weird. I'm at a loss. I'll see what I can find on the subject.

What are the permissions of /dev/snd, /dev/snd/*, /dev/dsp*, /dev/audio*, /dev/mixer*, /dev/midi*, /dev/sequencer*, etc ?

Do you have sound as root?

Are the modules installed? you can check with lsmod.
What's the contents of /etc/modprobe.conf ?

Also, remember to unmute the soundchannels once the rest checks out ok.
The soundchannels are muted by default.

If it worked during the install it should be fine. I would make sure that nothing is on mute. I know it's a long shot.
