Hi ,

You need to install the livna repo to get the non-free software

su
rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/6/i386/livna-release-6-1.noarch.rpm
yum install amarok-extras-nonfree

when i install livna , can i see then also the non free parts in the package manager of fedora core, or do i need to do somthing else for that?

The package manager is just a frontend (gui ) for yum ( yum is the command line package installer for fedora)

so if you use this command it will install amarok-extras-nonfree


su -
yum install amarok-extras-nonfree

But if you prefer you can select this package "amarok-extras-nonfree" from the list in the package manager, both will achive the same thing.

Hello Elena, nice to have you aboard. Hope your stay is long and pleasent. Let me give you a couple links you might want to check out. This first one is my prefered install guide:

http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-fedora-fc6.html

It will help you with stuff like true type fonts, limewire, mp3, flash...

You may also want to peek at:

http://www.fedorafaq.org/

This was finally completed and is also a great guide. I believe both these sites suggest the Livna repo which is also what Leigh suggested and the one I prefer. Just one word of warning, having used this repo try to stick with it. Try not to use the fresh/dag/dies repos as mixing these can have bad effects. Any other questions always feel free to post in this forum, these folks are a great bunch who love to help out.

I can highly recommend the guide that JN recommended.
I recommend the Livna repo over the other three because Livna provides 99% of the packages
that the other three provide all together.
