xine installation........help req....


I have fedora core 5 over my pc n i am new to the linux.

My sound card is fine, as i hear the test sound but i am unable to play any of the music files,rm or mp3 format.Any default player in the core installation is unable to do it.

I read the book and fopund that i need to get the plugin's.I downloaded the xine media player in the bz2 compression file but i am unable to uncompress it and install it.

The file which i have downloaded is "xine-lib-1.1.2.tar.bz2".Any help for this.........

cud the problem be this that i have downloaded the file in windows and then copied it in a cd and then i tried to install it in the linu thr the cd.but it dosen't seems logical since i am able to uncompress the file in linux it's just that i am unable to install the xine mp after that.......

Read Fedora Core 5 Linux Installation Notes by Stanton Finley for more information how to install software in Fedora and how to add mp3 and other formats support.

Fedora uses the RPM file format for updates. The normal way to update is the command ' yum update ' at the root logon.
But you need a network connection (ie.. dsl/cable modem) via ethernet. if no network connection is avalable (ie.. transfer via cdrom). You can download the RPM files and install them with the command ' rpm -uvhf rpmfilename '.
All of the xine/xmms (xmms is a music player like winamp) plugins are at http://bordeaux.freshrpms.net/ .
