    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!!!

    Winamp : excellent media player

    and for previous reviewers xmms is not a winamp rip off .. its the same developers .. before they became nullsoft they made xmms .. dont belive me? try winamp skins on xmms (assuming you know how)

    WinAMP is really the best media player for music ever.. XMMS is just a pure rip-off..

    ha! Yeah baby! Now THIS is the playtoy for our Linux R&D boys. Buggy as all hell, but that's kinda half expected with betas. Shouldn't this be called "LinAmp" though? -Sam

    i think this is a good idea but it shouldnt be called winapm because microsft might get angry and plus it will be running on a linux pc and it makes no sense you guys should name it LAMP

    This is great to see such a cool program finally be ported over to the best Operating System in the world! I've always been an XMMS fan myself, but WinAmp 3 looks pretty dang cool. Its a little wierd still being called /Win/Amp though, since Win is short for Windows, maybe LinAmp would make more sense? All well, keep up the nice work!
