Re: fedora 17 can't get plugins
What exactly are you trying to install and from what source?
mp3 and DVD codecs can only be obtained from 3rd party sources such as Sourceforge or AtRpms.
If you are trying to install a package from one of theses then you need to add the appropriate repo.
A simple way to get these codecs would be via Autoplus
I hope this helps,
