I am a newbie to linux, I was palying around with distros learing tricks to make things going
one of the tricks I learned is creating a file association through kde component in control center, in order to make specific extension run by aspecific program. and it was working with other distros.
Now on my recent FC3 installation the system refuses to remembr any of these setting, it is forgotten as I leave the control center, I also tried OPEN WITH and the option of remember the program association, in both cases the computer tells me it is updating the data base then nothing happens.
I am trying to make xine which I installed from downloaded rpm packages run all vedio files, because all other programs who came with the installation (noatun, kaboodle and helix) refuse to run anything of any kind. even media player 10.0.0.4 (also installed) refuses to run its origninal RM format.
I now open files every time by writing xine in the open with and it works succesfully.
and Of course I am logged as Root all the time.
