First of all, this is Linux, so rebooting is rarely necesary, except for kernel updates, NVidia, etc.

The huge list is normal: this is what you should have gotten:

If you got no errors, load RhythmBox, and try importing an mp3. You will not notice a difference in RhythmBox, but mp3 support IS enabled.

OK...sorry for the confusion and grief. I have a fool-proof tutorial now on how to do it, and I started from scratch so I KNOW it works...there is one little 51k file i forgot :P But its in the tut now, so enjoy.

To enable mp3 support in RhythmBox, follow these directions:

su -
<root password>

yum -y install gstreamer gstreamer-plugins-mp3

When installed, as root run: gst-register-0.8
Then type exit and run gst-register-0.8 as yourself.
A huge list will go flying by, then it will end and return you to a [user@hostname dir]# prompt.
When done, open RhythmBox. Nothing will appear different, but mp3 support IS there.


***NOTICE: to do the above process, you NEED livna repos. If you do not have livna repos set up, follow these directions:

su -
<root password>

rpm --import http://rpm.livna.org/RPM-LIVNA-GPG-KEY

Copy and paste this into your /etc/yum.conf file:
[livna]
name=Livna.org Fedora Compatible Packages
baseurl=http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/RPMS.lvn
gpgcheck=1
enabled=1

OK. livna repos is now a part of yum.
Now, follow directions above to install gstreamer.

And to answer the original question...you can not import mp3's directly into RhythmBox. You MUST import a folder at a time. In windows, i use iTunes, so everything is sorted into folders by artist and album, so it didn't occur to me too much....
but you can't import single files...sucks doesn't it?
