You don't....

There is a program called XMMS though, which is virtually identical. Assuming you're using KDE, it should be in the K menu, under an appropriate heading (which one escapes me right now. Need more sleep).

i think xmms doesn't play mp3's in red hat and fedora. what distro are you using. it was a quick fix for me using
Code:
apt-get install xmms-mp3
if your distro is fedora core 2, let me know and i will post more detailed instructions on getting apt-get to work

or go for beep-media-player
it looks, and feels exactly like XMMS... only its linked againsed the newer GTK2 library rather than the old GTK.

on many modern distro's it seems that the old GTK is only ever used for xmms.... use beep, and you can remove the old GTK and reclaim a little disk space.

hey david......
get into XMMS preferences,, find the output pluggin section.. and select a sound output pluggin, rather than the WAV file output pluggin (lol)

redhat 9 will probably be OSS (Open SOund System)
unless you migrated to 2.6kernel in which case it will be ALSA (Advanced linux sound architechture)
