Same problem with Mageia1 KDE LiveCD but it seems to be an unclear
patent issue !

If you use a LiveCD as a demo, and if you want to show that Mageia is
able to read mp3 files : you must now first that
1) you need to have a working internet access
2) you need to launch CCM
3) you need to launch rpmdrake
4) you need to add sources
5) you need to choose to add gstreamer-plugins-ugly (which allows to
read mp3 files and nevertheless is in core repo but not on the LiveCD ?! )

Then you demonstrate that Mageia is very easy to use for a newbie who
surely must know what is missing and how to install it !!! :(

More seriously : that's not clearly explained when you try to read a mp3
file : there's a quite useless message ...

you may also read this closed bug : Bug 219

   I complained on Mandriva Bugzilla for the same problem since Mandriva
One 2010.0 (liveCD) ; until 2008.1, LiveCD could read mp3 files out of
the box ... for 2009.0 and 2009.1 I don't know : I never could even
correctly boot with those LiveCD freezing )
