playing mp3s


hello folks it's me again

I have a couple of mp3s i like to listen to that I backup on a cd, and i moved them into a folder here in linux. I try to listen to them but they wont play. I do have sound working as I've tested and configured it successfully. the very first time i tried to listen to a file it popped up a window but i dont remember what it said (something about licensing to listen to it or something?)

something i need to set for this?

(in my quest i've already learned how to install programs woo hoo)

Red Hat 9 does not ship with the components necessary to play mp3s. This is because it would not be compatible with the GPL. Head to shrike.freshrpms.net and look for the xmms-mp3 along the side. Install that RPM and your mp3s will play just fine.

Yes, that is a non-fatal warning saying the package has not been digitally signed. If you are not super paranoid about security, it can be ignored.

I get the following response when trying the same thing (as su in normal user/group):

rpm -i xmms-mp3-1.2.7-21.p.fr1.src.rpm
warning: xmms-mp3-1.2.7-21.p.fr1.src.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID e42d547b
warning: user dude does not exist - using root
warning: group dude does not exist - using root
warning: user dude does not exist - using root
warning: group dude does not exist - using root
warning: user dude does not exist - using root
warning: group dude does not exist - using root
warning: user dude does not exist - using root
warning: group dude does not exist - using root

This results in me being able to play mp3z in xmms in root but not while in my normal user/group

help?

Well you're trying to install a SRC RPM? That's different to the standard binary sort that you want.

I can't think of what would cause XMMS to work as root but not as user, except maybe permissions on the sound device.

Do an ls -l on the rpm file and check the permissions

the fact that it was src was causing the installation problem

but after installation i still had the same problem, I had to copy the xmms config file from .xmms in root to my .xmms in user (the user congfig file had something about [zzmp3] enable= false) to finally get it working

http://havardk.xmms.org/dist/xmms-1.2.7-rh8-rh9-rpm/

download the first rpm package (do remember where you put it )

#> cd to that directory and type(from a command line)

rpm -ivh xmms-mpg123-1.2.7-21.i386.rpm

so put on ur dancing shoes and tap away.
