how do I put in a command in the configure mplayer file


ok I installed a new Xonar dx soundcard onto my Ubuntu hardy and found out the hard way that the soundcard is supported by Linux so I ended up having to Build the OSS sound system from source. Being new to Linux and the Linux commands took me a long time to do but finally after many tries I succeeded in doing so. Now I have sound for allot of things but mplayer has no sound at all and the little speaker is faded I read on the

you already said where the configfile should be: in your home directory ('~' is always your home dir like /home/blah). there should be a file called .mplayer (you can't see it because the '.' at the beginning of the name marks it as hidden. to see it use the -a ooption with ls). if it's not there simply create it and write "ao = oss" in it. save and ready.

good luck, vadkutya

thanks I didn't realize that I could create the configure file if it didn't exist so I will do that
