Xmms


I installed XMMS and the update so it will play WMA files but after 3 seconds of every song it stops playing and freezes XMMS so I decided that I want to uninstall XMMS and reinstall it but when I put in the command "#/rpm -e <xmms>" it doesnt work... I need to know if theres a way I can fix the problem with XMMS or how to uninstall it

That command should be `rpm -e xmms`. <filename> simply means substitute that with your filename without the greater than, less than signs.

If that doesn't work:

What distribution?

Fedora Core 3... The command didn't work, it just said "error: Failed dependencies:
libxmms.so.1 is needed by (installed) xmms-wma-0.1-1.i386
xmms >= 1.0.1 is needed by (installed) xmms-wma-0.1-1.i386"

So you need to uninstall the wma plugins first.

If you use the yum.conf from www.fedorafaq.org/fc3/ (read the section about how to use yum) you can get xmms to play what you want with a simple yum install

yum install xmms-*

Of course you may be able to fix your xmms issues with yum update xmms*

None of that seems to be working..

I think the best solution is to install MPlayer... I downloaded it and extracted it but I really don't know how to install it (im sure that this is a dumb question but I've only had linux for like 3 days)

go visit www.fedorafaq.org/fc3/ and read the faq.
to learn how to install mplayer and much more - visit www.mjmwired.net resources page. There's stuff about configuring your install of FC3 as well as how to install mplayer from source. You'll find this is exactly what you need.

BTW: please put your distro and location in your profile (see mine on the left?) - it saves time hunting back through your posts to find it, and it helps me to answer your questions.

I had major problems with that. You can see my post

But I finally got it working and listed what was needed. I also have fc3 so check it out

All authorities say if you want to play dvd in totem, you need the xine version.

Anyone who wants to install mplayer should be aware that it is not recommended to install from rpm.

For a flawless install, while actually understanding what you are doing, follow the instruction at www.mjmwired.net resources page. There is a personal mplayer install set out along with everything you need... thogh it is for fedora, the general pattern will work with anything running gcc.
