    Just in case the following is a little how to for people that run into problems:
    Installing Winamp 3 for Linux Alpha 1 on Fedora

    1.So you have decided to download the RPM and install it on your Fedora system. Good for you, you have done the first step.
    2.You will then need to install the rpm from that directory or by typing the full path to it as root or by using su command on a terminal console and typing this:
    # rpm -i /home/username/Downloads/Winamp-0.a1-1.i386.rpm
    Oh no I got a error: Missing Dependency: XFree86-libs Error
    No worries, do this steps first and then run the above mentioned command.
    Well, go to the following site: (http://rpm2html.osmirror...ironment_Libraries.html) and download the following libraries:
    1.XFree86-libs-data-4.3.0-55 Common architecture independent data required by XFree86-libs linux/i386
    2.XFree86-libs-4.3.0-55 Shared libraries needed by the X Window System linux/i386

    Now you will need to install these two in that same order ( 1 and then 2). Why? Well, because you might end up with the following error when you try to just install Xfree86-libs-4.3.0-55.
    #rpm -i /home/doug/Downloads/XFree86-libs-4.3.0-55.i386.rpm
    error: Failed dependencies:
    XFree86-libs-data = 4.3.0-55 is needed by Xfree86-libs-4.3.0-55.i386
    3. In conclusion, the sequence of commands should be the following:
    # rpm -i /home/username/Downloads/XFree86-libs-data-4.3.0-55.i386.rpm
    # rpm -i /home/username/Downloads/XFree86-libs-4.3.0-55.i386.rpm
    # rpm -i /home/username/Downloads/Winamp-0.a1-1.i386.rpm
    4.You will then either create a link or just type the following on a terminal:
    # /usr/local/bin/Winamp
    5.And you have Winamp on your penguin box. Nice!!!
