    How to enable music over FC3

    Hello It's me again. Well I don't know how to enable music over my Fedora. I think that I can't even hear normal CD that are supported I think.

    I know that for playing mp3 I need mp3 plugins but for cd also? I don't think so, but I don't know what's the problem.

    I really don't know a lot of things (as obvious) but Fedora really doesn't help a lot. I am winning a battle after having lost at least 20!

    Any help will do.

    We need more info. Your sound card? Does the sound work when yoru speaker is on and your system boots?

    hello,
    8 times out of ten there is something wrong with the mixer - i.e. volume controls - run gnome-alsamixer and see if that helps. It may be called volume control or something else too...

    I tried the mixer thing. It can play some wav files but the quality is really bad (I think). SO I figure out I need drivers for my card.
    My card is integraded in my motherboard (AC97 Audio and P4 Titan 667 respectedly).
    Can you tell where can I get some Linux drivers for my sound card?

    Also I have a question over yum update.

    I tried to use

    yum install gstreamer-plugin-mp3

    and this is what I get

    Setting up Install Process
    Setting up Repo: base
    repomd.xml 100% |=========================| 1.1 kB 00:00
    Setting up Repo: updates-released
    repomd.xml 100% |=========================| 951 B 00:00

    updates-re: ################################################## 865/865
    No Match for argument gstreamer-plugin-mp3
    Nothing to do

    What does it mean "no match" -at the end- when I don't have the plugins?

    Thanks

    This means that it can't find a match on the repository, for what you are looking for.
    Yum is picky with names.

    For general MP3 playback, follow the instructions here: http://www.fedorafaq.org/#rhythmbox-mp3

    Make sure you follow them exactly.

    And you're saying that there's no sound when you play CDs? Does it look like it's playing (ie, when you press play, does the song position slider start moving and do you see the time counter start counting the seconds of playback)? Also, what are you using to play cds?

    This is the problem:

    You are using this command:
    Code:
    yum install gstreamer-plugin-mp3
    when it should be
    Code:
    yum install gstreamer-plugins-mp3
