Rpm is not installed in mulinux. Why? Well a tar-bz2 file containing the
binary and the sources is about 8 Mega. you can compile it on a libc5 system
or with static libraries, but you will never successfully install rpms,
because of the package depencies, i think. instead, you should download the
mp3blaster sources and compile them. this would be more easy.
