Can somebody tell me where I can find a codec pack so I can listen to mp3s and other media formats with Amarok?



I apologize, these were automatic updates when I used Xubuntu

Hello:
I don't use amarok, however, until someone else comes along :)

I believe you need to install the livna repository if you have not already done so. The instructions for doing so are located here : Livna (http://rpm.livna.org/rlowiki/UsingLivna)
Then you can install with yum
amarok-extras-non-free
you may also need to install
gstreamer
gstreamer-plugins-bad
gstreamter-plugins-ugly
and perhaps some others .. just do a yum list | grep gstreamer
or
yum -y install yumex
and you can use yumex [gui for yum] to search

You may also want to install the codec package which you can grab here : Codecs (ftp://ftp1.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/codecs/all-20061022.tar.bz2)
And follow the instructions here to install them : Installation (http://stanton-finley.net/fedora_core_5_installation_notes.html#Codecs)
