Just loaded up Fedora Core yesterday and I am a major n00b with linux so bear with me here. Trying to install mplayer and having a heck of a time. First it errored out saying I needed "libmp3lame" so I figured out that I needed to install Lame. I tried but all that does is error out on me saying it can't create directory.
So any help would be apprieciated.

Are you installing from source?

You might to have a go with RPM's first if you really dont know what you are doing, they should automatically fix depencies (I think, its been awhile since I've used an RPM distro).

Anyhoo, I prefer Xine with GZine since it incorporates plugins for Mozilla/Firebird.

Yes they are RPMs, but still no luck even getting Lame to install. Think I might check out Xine instead. Any tips there on getting that installed?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
