I wonder too... yum search gmedia shows http://www.gnu.org/software/gmediaserver/

but I would rather guess he means gstreamer... but that should be installed by default :confused:

But in case it is gstreamer... its config is in system->preferences->hardware->multimedia systems selector or gstreamer-properties and it's located in gnome-media package.

Hm... in that case I think you are stuck with CLi... Configuration is in /etc/sysconfig/gmediaserver and it should be configured as a service, so if you go to system->administration->services or system-config-services you should be able to run/stop/restart and enable/disable it there. man gmediaserver might be also useful...

It's a service... just run (with root privileges) service gmediaserver start and see how it works. If it works than enable it as described above. I quickly tried it and it works for me.

hmm... I don't know... Try gnomefiles (http://www.gnomefiles.org) if you find something there. But I would wonder... Server things usually are CLi only...

Ok... when I said root privileges I meant also with root search path... so $ su -
# service gmediaserver start the $ and # are there to symbolize privileges, don't type them (they should be already on the terminal) and don't forget to type the su - with the dash. It will ask for a root password.

Yes. Media Tomb (http://mediatomb.cc/pages/download#fedora) has a nice web interface that you can access from any browser and you can use it to set it up.

did you typed su - or su? The dash is important. If it still fails look into /sbin for a program called service.

EDIT: it's not dash, but hyphen... my bad knowledge of English punctuation... :D

Just run mediatomb in a terminal. It will show it starting up and provide you with a link to the web interface, right click on it and select Open Link. Once it opens up in a browser you can just navigate your filesystem and click on a folder then on the plus sign to add it to your shared folders, there should be an autoscan icon too. Not sure about the 360 but the PS3 just picks it right up and it also has a "Search for media servers" option.

If you installed it as a rpm package then thus:
su -
yum -y install yum-utils-1.1.5-1.fc7
package-cleanup --problems

I'm trying to serve too and having some issues I don't know if this post is the best place but I'll give it a try.
When trying to stream I'm getting
Found regular file 'example.mp3'
Matched no type
Skipping (file type excluded)
I've tried having the program include unknown file types but then my PS3 doesn't see the files.
