Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Well, I don't see it there. I think xine can play ogg at least by default (it is a free format), so I don't think it is a codec problem. Also,. I have been doing some testing on my own and if I run xine from the command line and specify a playlist, the same songs that were not playing, now play! I don't understand.
Also, while I've got someone's attention..is there a way tp supress both portions of the GUI for xine. I ask because I want to run a cron job that will play a playlist in the morning to wake me up. I have tried passing -I -H -IH -gH --hidegui -H, but I can only supress either the video window or the main panel..not both If the GUI isn't disabled the cron job doesn't run
Did you try uninstalling and using the packages from the link I posted above. That way you will know whether it's a problem with your package or if it's something else. To play ogg files, you must have libogg and libvorbis.
