Question Does Red Hat 9 support MP3 and MPEG


I recently installed Red Hat 9 on my PC.
Though the distro is good, but it lacks MP3 support.
The XMMS does not support it due to patent copyright laws!!

This is HELL!!
IS there any way i can get to play MP3s on Red Hat 9.Are there any other players available??

Please Help!!

You need to install a package called xmms-mp3. You will have to search at or rpmfind, you maybe lucky to find a link that has the package for Redhat 9.
