hey i think u have not got the right package to install.
Generally the packages to be installled on mandrake linux have mdk in their file name(just ast the file names in the dependency failures that are stated in ur logs).
so go to xmms.org and download the version for mandrake.
hope this helps.

Nope the reference to tex indicates that the rpm that's been downloaded is one from texstar.

Texstar is one of the places you can get stuff for mandrake that hasn't been included with mandrake official for whatever reason i.e. sometimes licenceing, sometimes just too new.

If you look at the dependency problems, there seems to be something going one between the texstar version and the offical mandrake version.

Have you tried uninstalling xmms completely and starting again or you could just keep searching for the missing libraries and installing them ???

Firstly, I should point out that I have both texstar and plf set up in rpmdrake as "contrib" sources.

to do this, you would have to surf to the plf site and follow the link in para 1.2 for easy urpmi follow the instructions and select mirrors that are closest to you.

The from the resulting "command line" instructions in the box at the bottom of the page do a cut and paste into a konsole/terminal - make sure that you have selected a mirror for everything.

That way, when you have done the cut and paste you get all the possible options. When I did the cut and paste I didn't even have to hit enter, it started on it's own, and I only had to enter when it stopped "doing it's thing".

When I was dropped back into the $ prompt, I closed the konsole/terminal, and opened mandrake control centre and went to the "rpmdrake-" section and under multimedia check the xmms, which told me that I had to uninstall 2 other packages xmms libs and xmms mesa - clicked OK and these where checked for me (they were all mandrake packages), and uninstalled them.

I then went into "rpmdrake+" and went to the multimedia section, when rpmdrake+ opens it checks and updates the details of all installable packages it can find, it showed the mandrake packages and the texstar (the more uptodate) packages.

I just check the xmms, xmms libs and xmms mesa, and installed them. It told me that all packages were installed OK, and I have checked this by listening to the "ogg streams" from thelinuxshow and virginradio. Both played OK. Hence my xmms is now updated to the latest version, without the hassle of going to the xmms site and installing from source - I should imagine that if you did actually find any mandrake original packages there, they would be the older version, any newer, then probably the texstar ones.

Though I don't know which version is now included with the new mandrake 9.2 ???

1) I think you should try getting version 1.2.8 of everything else as well, if possible.
2) These dependancy errors you can take fairly lightly. Just because the package doesn't have mdk in the name doesn't mean it won't work

well, i pretty much gave up... xmms didnt work at all for a few minutes... so i removed all rpms with rpmdrake-remove and then reinstalled them with rpmdrake. i think mandrake 9.1 comes with 1.2.7 version of xmms, so i figured that there shouldnt be much of a difference, and i cant go very long with out music

If you follow my instructions to update your "urpmi sources" so you've got the texstar and plf ones, the tex version of xmms IS 1.2.8, whereas the mandrake one is still 1.2.7

though it still suggests that you'd need to use rpmdrake remove to uninstall xmms (all versions) if it's not working, cos as I already pointed out, the dependency conflicts seem to be to do with the multiple versions that you posted.

Then you can't loose - and you get the latest version - from what I can find out, in the world of mandrake, texstar's stuff is very highly regarded.

you could always register/search here but even then, it's still not an "official" mandrake site, and you probably won't get a reply as quickly as here at LQ (but that's only microsoft mentality i.e. there's more members here)

Up to you.

regards

John
