In order to play MP3's you will need to compile and install the " lame " audio codec's.
You will also need to install codec's to play back video.
You will also need to install Wine to run windows EXE's within linux.

To install A large package containing the most popular codecs

I believe you need to install the livna repository if you have notalready done so. The instructions for doing so are located here : Livna
Then you can install with yum
amarok-extras-non-free
you may also need to install
gstreamer
gstreamer-plugins-bad
gstreamter-plugins-ugly
and perhaps some others .. just do a yum list | grep gstreamer
or
yum -y install yumex
and you can use yumex [gui for yum] to search

You may also want to install the codec package which you can grab here : Codecs
And follow the instructions here to install them : Installation

To install Wine you can simple type the following command into any shell / terminal available

yum install wine

or

su yum install wine

Can't execute .exe


Your Netbook uses Fedora 6 for an operating system which is a version of linus. *nix operating systems do not use file extensions to determine if a file is executable or not. It uses information stored in the file header. Most likely this .exe you want to execute is not a *nix executable file but a Windows executable instead.

How can i play videos in fedora10


This is what the VLC website says:

Fedora 9 and Fedora 10 Use RPM Fusion for F9 and F10 (available for x86, x86_64, ppc and ppc64)
Install rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm for F9 and f10
$> su -
#> rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm
#> yum install vlc
#> yum install mozilla-vlc (optionnal)
I'm not a Fedora man myself so hopefully this makes sense to you.

If not I'll see what I can dig up.

Best of luck!

MP3 problem


I think that means you have have not downloaded the codecs needed to be able to play mp3 files. You need to go to open up terminal and type in "sudo yum install gstreamer-mp3 " or gstreamer-plugins-bad, or such to be able to use Totem and Rhythmbox/banshee to play mp3. To use XMMS, just download xmms-mp3 rpm, you can google for the details. I am not using Fedora so I can't give you the exact package name.

How to install .exe files


Linux doesn't uses .exe files. Our executables are made in a different manner.

Since the app is a Windows app (hence the .exe), my recommendation would be to install it on a Windows partition (if you have one), and access it with WINE.

I don't think that WINE can install onto the Linux partitions, but you might give that a shot, by simply running the installer with WINE.
