MP3 to CD

I have an MP3 that I want to put on CD. K3B has a plug-in to do this called k3b-mp3, but it’s not in the standard distribution for Fedora 8. A poster said it’s available from the Livna Repository. I download the repository RPM only to find out I already had it installed. Now I wonder why it’s not showing up in the package manager. Browse RPM Find to look at package contents and see that k3b-mp3 is in the k3b-extras-nonfree package. Installing this package will also install K3B if it’s not already there.

GMPlayer Flashing Dialog

Although mplayer worked fine, I couldn’t click on videos or music files in Nautilus because it runs gmplayer and gmplayer flashed a dialog box over and over too fast to see. I ran gmplayer on an MP3 file at the command line and got this message over and over:
[AO_ALSA] Unable to find simple control 'PCM',0.
A google of this turned up a solution:

Change Preferences/Audio driver to Pulse (from Alsa)
