i thought delete/reinstall would fix it, guess not...(xine on mandrake 9.0)


ok, here's the deals in a very detail manner

went to urpmi download most up-to-date packages, see some stuff for my little xine player. installed, and nightmare occur never since!

xine has no sound when i play viedo, so i login as root, slocate everything with xine, delete'em all, and reinstall xine from cds, guess what...

my xine setting (plugin, skins,etc) still there, and still no sound.

i am hoping i can get this fix without having to do the "window way" (that is reinstall the whole stupid system)

idea and suggestions ?

what desktop environment? if using kde, click the settings in xine and on the default tab (gui) where it says configuration experience level, set the value to master of the known universe. the click the audio tab and in the audio driver to use choose arts. make sure you're sound server is set to start when you log in.

if you're using gnome, do the same thing except for the audio driver choose oss.

and the reason your settings are still there is because xine creates user specific settings. $HOME/.xine is where those settings are stored for your user.

oh yeah, install xine again since you uninstalled it.

1) the desktop is kde3
2) i see setting in xine, and i see default tab (gui), but i don't see "configuration experience leve"
3)i see audo tab, and the audio driver to use , i don't see "Art", i see ogg
4)when used slocate, everything with the string "xine" was showed, and i -deleted- everything, that is included things in my ~/.xine, i log in as a dummy user acct, and same thing happens, xine no sound.
p.s.: when play xmms, there's sound

what version of xine are you using?

screenshot of xine-gui 0.9.22 using xinelibs1-1rc2-0

second to the last one from the bottom. if you're using an older version of xine, you should check the audio tab and see which audio driver you are using. try typing in arts there and playing a vid-file. if you get some kind of error about a codec, then you need to download codecs. common codecs need are divx from divx.com, win32codecs, win32qt codecs (win32 quicktime codecs), win32qt-extras, and real9 codecs. the win codecs can be gotten from either xine's or mplayer's site.
