Unhappy libxmms.so.1 missing


Hi, All,
I've been trying to do some work on my Redhat Enterprise Workstation. One of the things I've been trying to do is uninstall the XMMS that came with Enterprise, so I could replace it with a more up-to-date version that includes the mp3 codecs, so I can listen to my tunes.
I signed in as root, brought up the package manager, found and unchecked XMMS, and when I clicked update, I got an error message that said:"The following package could not be found on your system. Installation cannot continue intil it is installed." The package is "libxmms.so.1". Does anyone have a clue what it's talking about, and how to take care of this? I've been trying to find this package, and I can't find it anywhere.

Thanks,

Steve

Have you tried uninstalling from terminal? Use:

Code:
rpm -e xmms
Because I think the package manager can't find the xmms rpm package. (I rarely use the gui package manager, it's confusing).

I just tried it from the terminal. Here's what I got:

error: Failed dependencies:
libxmms.so.1 is needed by (installed) kdeaddons-3.1.3-1


Thanks,

Steve

Hello all,
Can anyone help me with this problem? I've tried everything I can think of, including installing an updated copy of XMMS with the -u(update). It won't let me do anything to XMMS. This is really becoming annoying!

Thanks,

Steve

How do I check to see if the kdeaddons package is installed? Can I check with RPM? I'm still rather new at this.

Thanks,

Steve

Try:

rpm -e --nodeps xmms

or just remove the kdeaddons package.

You can check the package this way:

rpm -q kdeaddons

or

rpm -qa | grep kdeaddons
