MP3 Playback

Hi,

I've just installed FC6 and am at a bit of a loss as to how to get MP3 playback working under FC6. I tried following a guide on fedorafaq.org that required me to update my YUM configuration by executing the following command as root.

pm -Uvh http://www.fedorafaq.org/yum http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-5.rpm

However I think this must be specific to FC5 as I get the following error

[root@Homer etc]# rpm -Uvh http://www.fedorafaq.org/yum http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-5.rpm
Retrieving http://www.fedorafaq.org/yum
Retrieving http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-5.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
fedora-release = 5 is needed by yum-fedorafaq-5-2006.05.09.noarch

Just wondering if anyone has FC6 installed and has MP3 playback working. If so what guid did you follow to get it working?

David

I'm guessing if you change the 5 to 6 (in livna-release-5.rpm) it might work.

EDIT: and indeed the livna site provides:
rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-6.rpm

Tried what? Did you install the livna-release-6 package? What happens when you try to install the MP3 packages?

What happens when you do:

# rpm -Uvh http://www.fedorafaq.org/yum http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-6.rpm

Alright hold up, just install the Livna repo by running this in a terminal:

rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-6.rpm

Once you've got that done head here:

http://forum.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=135568

This should take care of most of your problems/questions, if not let us know.

Edit - Here's a couple more good sites:

http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-fedora-fc6.html

http://stanton-finley.net/fedora_cor...ion_notes.html

Fedora FAQ is pretty outdated, some stuff still works though.
