My first suggestion is to use ogg if possible for Linux playback. That being said - I use mp3 myself, I have a small collection commpared to some - but I don't have room for 20 GB of mp3 for my iPod rotation and 20 GB of ogg for Linux. So I too use mp3 for Linux. I use the gstreamer plugins from rpm.livna.org They work for me in Rhythmbox and AmoroK (I usually don't like KDE apps, and I rarely use AmoroK - but it absolutely rocks) I don't use any repositories other than Base, Updates, Extras, livna, and (for java) jpackage. Those repositories work very well together - and *rarely* is there breakage.
