According to :

(this also accounts for the package xine-libs)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

*** Bug 70034 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Waiting on a compiler bugfix
Will gnome-xine be included, either as a separate package or bundled?
It's alpha-style, but yet it's an official release (v0.2).
Make that 0.9.13!

Noticed that Xine is not included anymore in RH 8.0.
Also, it does not appear in Rawhide.
It would be nice to re-introduce Xine in Red Hat Linux as Red Hat seems
to be focusing more on the desktop as of Red Hat 8.0
It would seem the MP3 stance that Redhat has taken would apply to Xine as well
since the MP3 component is required for video playback of MP3 files.
Users are free to download what ever they want though.
With Xine I do know the dependancy's makes for a interesting challange.
There are two very interesting applications that help with installing packages
with dependancy's, both at http://freshrpms.net.
Once both of these apps are downloaded you need only do a "$ apt-get update"
then run the GUI for "synaptic" in the systems menu. Select Xine from the
list. Click install, then click proceed.
Maybe is novice users have these two applications available some of the more
complex installs would be simplified.
I'll resolve this bug as "WONTFIX" as it seems Red Hat will not include Xine
