Unhappy Ok, this is odd...


I installed the drivers correctly I believe (No thanks to you guys!). But XMMS is doing something odd. When I hit play, it goes to volume 0%, then 1%, then 0%, and so on... It never plays at all. Can you guys tell me whats going on? I'm using the newest version, and I'm running Mandrake 9.1 But I think it involves my soundcard, so I put this in the hardware forums.

I've never seen XMMS do this personally, but to start with, can you give us your system specs and also the output of dmesg and lsmod? A little more information would certainly help.

most definately. Its a 900Mhz HP Pavillion 8765C with 128MB Ram with two CD-ROM Drives(One DVD, other CD-RW), A floppy drive, 45.0 GB Ultra DMA Hard Drive (Partitioned. Half-XP Half-Mandrake 9.1)I wish I knew what my mother board was. It's an AMD Athlon Processor.
My soundcard is a 123456 Master Riptide Audio PCI
My modules.conf file is the following:

hmmmm...... all of the modules seem to be loaded correctly, no IRQ conflits or any errors in your dmesg. It all looks fine. I think we can rule out a hardware (or at least a hardware config) issue, and just focus on XMMS as a culprit.

One thing I didn't think of before, are you trying to play an MP3? Can you play just a normal CD? I know that a lot of the distro's have removed MP3 support from XMMS because of copyright issues, and you have to manually dl and add the MP3 codec in-order for XMMS to play MP3s. Do you know if you have MP3 support?

I too have never seen this problem.
First off has it worked before?

If so delete your ~/.xmms folder. Start up xmms again and see what happens. If it does not fix it then you will need to remove xmms and reinstall. If still no luck does sound work on your system? If not there is a problem with sound.

Hope this helps.

Is mandrake one of the culprits for MP3 disable? Because that's exactly what I was trying to do. Do you know how to uninstall it? I tried, but I keep getting problems.... >

Issue this command in a terminal ' rpm -qa >rpm.list '
Now you can search the rpm.list file and find the names of all xmms files that will be removed. Use the following command rpm -e name_of_file
example' rpm -e xmms-1.2.7-21.p '

Then I would downlaod new rpms into a folder and issue the following command ' rpm -Uvh *.rpm ' .This will install all rpms in the folder

Hope you get it going.

It should also be noted that you have to do this with root privilages. If not you won't be able to open the packagedb.

log in as root or use either "su" or "sudo" to install the package.

Ok, I did re-install, and its not the problem. After tinkering around with the sound plugs, I realized that it's been trying to send sound through my modem! It's not even reading the sound card! Please help me configure the riptide drivers not to read the modem, and the sound card instead.
