Fedora aims to be a 100% "free software" distribution and the MP3 format has a lot of legal baggage attached to it. If you want to play MP3, you have to do some extra work.
A google search for "fedora mp3" turns up nearly two million hits, the first couple should give you an idea as to how to get started (it would be wise to narrow that search down for your particular version of Fedora, but you didn't clue us in).

Or can anyone help me know how to install RealPlayer10GOLD.bin on Fedora core 5 version?

So once I install Real Player, I will be able to play mp3 songs right??

Please help guys! Yesterday I was trying the installation and it gave me some errors after I tried this by pressing ctrl+alt+f1 and then gave the username and password and typed at the $ prompt, chmod u+x RealPlayer10GOLD.bin and hit enter and then typed ./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin after which it gave me some errors saying that it cannot find the directory. I'm sure that the RealPlayer10GOLD.bin is in the home directory under my username.

I'm just a beginner with fedora. Can anyone please giude me step by step on how I can make my Fedora play mp3 songs either by installing RealPlayer or any other players.

Freddy Wong,

I visited the XMMX site and I have Fedora 5.0 version, so which XMMS binary should I download?

Please help guys! I would like also to be able to play video files along with mp3. So would installing real player be the option or XMMS alone would suffice?? In any case, I would be needing help.

Awaiting your response!

Did you follow the link in my post to Google?
Did you follow the first link Google comes up with? The one that tells you how to install MP3 support and RealAudio/Video?

By the way does yum comes along with fedora installation? I did look at the links and I will try them at home and any errors I will post them here again tomorrow and please help be thereafter.

Since it appears on the main page of the Fedora documentation I'd say "yes".

Hi Guys,

Here is what I did and the errors that I get are as below,

I wanted to install RealPlayer10GOLD.bin which is located under root's home.

I logged in as a super user in the graphical mode and then I pressed ctrl+alt+f2 to open the terminal and then I gave the user name as root and gave my password. Then it looked like this,

[root@localhost ~]#

After that I typed,
[root@localhost ~]# chmod a+x /root/RealPlayer10GOLD.bin
after pressing enter, I gave
[root@localhost ~]# ./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin

After which I got this error :Error while loading shared libraries:libstdc++.so.5:cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

Please anyone help me. I'm breaking my head for the last two days on this.
