Question sound card ?


Now according to Red Hat 9, my sound card works. ( i did the test) The only problem is that I can only hear the small sound effects in GAIM (as far as i know). Now, I tried downloading an mp3 and playing it, but nothing actually lets me play it. Actually , one does, but I hear nothing. I also tried playing a CD... still, no luck. BTW my sound card is a:
Sound Blaster Live! Value
and works beautifully with Windows.
how do I fix this?!!

thx in advance

The Red Hat 9 people decided not to include mp3 codecs because of weird licensing issues I think.

You need to install a small RPM to be able to play them.

you cant play (hear) cd's unless u have an audio cable attatched from cd drive to your sound card (windows doesnt require this special connection)

you can rip them easily and then play them. Use grip or something..
