Here is how I restored Mp3 Support to XMMS in Fedore Core 2

1. download this: http://www.osnews.com/files/xmms-mp3-fc1.tar.gz
2. tar -zxvf xmms-mp3-fc1.tar.gz
3. Copy the so lib file (as root) to /usr/lib/xmms/Input
4. Restart xmms

[My appologies if this has been posted already. I'm a n00b.]

Another possibility:
1. Take livna.org in your yum or apt
2.type as root


yum install xmms-mp3
or


apt-get install xmms-mp3



Or you can make it this way:
1. Download this file : http://rpm.livna.org//fedora/2/i386/RPMS.stable/xmms-mp3-1.2.10-0.lvn.2.2.i386.rpm
2. Type in the location of the file as root :


rpm -ihv xmms-mp3-1.2.10-0.lvn.2.2.i386.rpm


I think all the ways lead to a success, so not way is the only correct one.

I love how you help people, and I love that you post useful things, but please read the f.a.q. before you post. If it's already covered in the f.a.q. another how-to isn't needed.

Haven't got FC2 installed yet. Will this same rpm work with FC1?

Thanks a lot. The 2.2 works on FC1 too!

Just that the volume is kind of soft. Pump up the speaker vol to the max but still quite soft. Why so?

Gnomemixer or something like that (if you use oss and alsamixer if you allready use alsa)
