You need to become su (in a terminal) and type rpm -ivvh xmms-mp3*.rpm

You could open it with rpm I guess, but then you'd need to be root to install it systemwide.

just use up2date to get mp3 support for this type this into terminal

# up2date xmms-mp3 gstreamer-plugins-mp3 libmad libid3tag

after installing finished do this

One thing you'll need to do is fire up xmms and go to Options -> Preferences then choose Audio I/O Plugins. In that list scroll down and find the MPEG Layer 1/2/3 Placeholder Plugin and disable it. Then enable the new plug-in you just downloaded which is listed as MPEG Layer 1/2/3 Player. Now MP3s should play just fine.

It worked for me :D

^Best solution. You have to add another repository to the yum list first.

From the same page:

Edit /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources

and add:

yum livna-stable http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/2/i386/yum/stable/

apt fedora-us-stable-fc2 http://download.fedora.us fedora/fedora/2/i386 stable

Then you'll be able to add alot of extra software directly from up2date

Yeah the second one is a pretty big apt repository.

Fedora.US started as a group making extra packages for Red Hat linux products. When Red Hat decided to make a community version, they merged with the Fedora Linux Project and created... Fedora Core!
