mp3 in xmms


hi all...
i want to add plug in for my xmms in red hat 9, and it shows:

[neo@localhost linux]$ rpm -Uvh xmms-devel-1.2.7-22.i386.rpm
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
package xmms-devel-1.2.7-22 is already installed
[neo@localhost linux]$ rpm -Uvh xmms-1.2.7-22.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
xmms = 1.2.7 is needed by (installed) xmms-devel-1.2.7-22

uh-i dont remember what U does (update?)..anyway, u can get more info by typing "rpm --help|more"

in there, u will also find an option "--force" that ignores dependency problems...but its not recommended, may screw up ur installation.

why are u still stuck will xmms? try mplayer instead...its better in every respect..
i thought the xmms thats given with RHL 9.0 dosent play mp3s...another reason to use mplayer!

first install xmms, than xmms plugins, skins etc. so now remove xmms-devel, than install xmms first after that install the plugin for the player
for playing mp3's you must download another one plugin http://shrike.freshrpms.net/rpm.html?id=833

I think what you are seeing is that xmms-devel-1.2.7-22.i386.rpm is dependent upon xmms-1.2.7-22.i386.rpm. Thats why you cant Upgrade xmms-1.2.7-22.i386.rpm. One way around this is to use the command:
rpm -Uvh xmms*

when you do this then rpm will figure which pacakge to upgrade first.

as for mp3 support in rh9 I just used the xmms that came installed (xmms-1.2.7-21) and installed the package: xmms-mp3-1.2.7-21.p.fr1

good luck,
Frodak
