Anyone have Winamp3 Alpha working on RED HAT 7.2??


I tried to use it, but nothing happens, no error message nothing. I see that it tried to create a window in X, but it goes away. Oh well..xmms works fine, i guess i will have to just use that.

Give winamp away, xmms does everything and it can even use winamp skins.

i really didn't like W3 when i got the alpha for windows. I really couldn't get it to do soemthing that was really simple... but i can't remember for the life of me what it was now! ahh pants! and i don't like the icon. Why do they seem to think that it ha to be more complicated, that stupid drawer thing, and magnifying glas.. waste of time, and cpu power.

Only thing i prefer winamp to over xmms is the plugins, i use a really cool directory lister under window, and can't get the same easy access to 6000 mp3's under windows...

vague question that might be insteresting... i have my mp3's networked on samba from a fat32 drive.. ughh i know. if i did convert it to ext2, would it be able to retrieve the file names faster? at the mometn it takes about 30 seconds in xmms when i want to play directories, as it has to get teh entire file tree from the samba server, and i'd think this might be cos it's fat32 not ext2? any ideas?
