You've been a member of this site for a while now and should know that if you do not provide precise details of your problem then its difficult for you to get help. Why are you bothering with gstreamer anyway, just setup the PLF urpmi repo and install amarok-xine.

You need to add more rpm sources to urpmi. The instructions are available at easyurpmi. The repos you need are the main, contrib, plf and updates. To find out how to use urpmi, go to http://www.zebulon.org.uk. Once the repos are setup you can install amarok-xine using rpmdrake or urpmi at the CLI.

very useful, thanks.

I'll download amarok from http://www.gkmweb.com/amarok/2006.0/1.3-stable/
use rpm -ivh to install, OK?

The point of setting up extra rpm sources is that you install the packages you need by selecting them from the software module in the Mandriva Control Center. This will also make sure that dependencies are automatically resolved.

The links I posted have a guide on how to setup urpmi and how to use it in the CLI or GUI, so if you had read them, I am sure you would have figured out how to install amarok-xine and other packages.

That guy can be bloody cryptic
Go to the urpmi site listed ,it will set up a command that you copy and paste into a terminal window. Its quite a long command and it takes some time to download but it sets up a list of files available from that site.
The PLF or penguin liberation front has all the files which cant be put into distributions like xine for legal reasons.

So when you then select and install the latest xine from there it will have all that you want preinstalled

Ok, I think I see where you are going wrong. The easyurpmi site has links to Mandriva rpm repos (sort of like the Suse YAST repos) so all you need to do is select the mirrors you want to use and they will all the printed onscreen once your done. Fire up a terminal like konsole and switch to root. Enter the commands from easyurpmi, one at a time until each mirror has been configured. When the process is complete start the MCC go to software and then search for amarok. You will see a list of packages related to amarok and all you need to do is tick amarok-xine and click install. If you prefer to do it at the command line all you need to do is switch to root and do "urpmi amarok-xine". While you are at it, you might as well install win32 codecs, libdvdcss and kaffeine.

I wasn't being bloody cryptic, so please just get off my case coz I am getting sick and tired of your little jibes. One of the links I posted above has a tutorial on how to setup and use urpmi and the easyurpmi site clearly states what you should do to add extra repos. From the responses initially given by TigerLinux, he doesn't indicate whether he read the article or not and whether he setup urpmi, so that did not give me any clues about where exactly he is facing problems.
