i am downloading disk3 and 4 also to install kde desktop and other packages

Yes Synaptic manager is not installed with the packages. You can use
After that just do (logging in as root)
yum install xmms
For playing mp3s visit the same link
Problems and Their Solutions
see the 7th question.
If you are from India...........Why do you want to download Fedora.........It is distributed with PCQuest and also with LinuxForYou magazines, I think Digit also gives it.......I am also waiting for Fedora Core4 to be given with these magazines, So now I am using Fedora Core3 :)

see my post bug in parted disk druid
i bought fc3 from mahavir
but i am not able to install with it
the magazines i know abt but i did not think they give operating system cds
well anyway fc4 is very nice
i have not seen fc3 desktop
it all started by trying to install linux 4 all ,live cd
i could not install it without fedoracore
hence i bought it
the 100 rs i spent on it is now a waste
how u were able to install fc3 with the partitioner bug?
i like to have all 3 desk tops if possible
in fc4 only kde and gnome desktops options r there
thanks for responding
i will try installing xmms

Yes these magazines do provide OS CDs/DVDs
I had no problems installing FC3 ( I have installed in many of my friends place also)
But anyway you are half way through FC4, so no point stopping now.

Good to see more Bangaloreans here!!!!!
Don't forget to check out: www.linux-bangalore.com
They should be meeting in a few months

Wow!!!!!!!!!! That site you posted is x-pensive Ragavendra!
buy your cds of www.bazee.com [which is now ebay.in],
get all 4 FC3 CDs for 100 buck, + 50 for delivery!
Good deal, compared to the 700 your link is asking
10th May 2005, 06:11 PM
Yes it is expensive, I think I bought RedHat 7.2 from them, after that I have been using CDs given by the magazines.
Never tried Baazee so dont know about the quality.
I think we should Burn CDs for free at our places and pass it on to anyone who wants it :)

I know, how often does Linux For You come out? I want to get a subscription. They keep giving out entire distros! If I recall, the last CD came free with Knoppix Cluster 3.3. Didn't try it though
10th May 2005, 07:11 PM
It is monthly
I think subscription for a year is Rs.725/-
The topic heading is XMMS
and here we are talking about Magazines :p
I think we should move this under a different new heading before the community managers start doing that ;)
