Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

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
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.
