Angry xmms problem!


just a quick query, i've just installed fedora core 2 and everything is going fine with the exception of xmms.

When i play an MP3 the song timer runs so fast it's difficult to read, i've just watched a 5:00 minute song play in 10 seconds.

There is a package that u need to install because redhat/fedora dont have mp3 support. Search the board for it.

in terminal, try this:
rpm -e xmms

It'll show you a list of dependencies.

use rpm -e (each one of those dependencies)

then do
rpm -e xmms
again
this will uninstall XMMS

Next, go to the XMMS site and download the tarball
NOT THE RPM

then 'unzip' the files
in terminal, cd to the 'unzipped' directory.
run the following command:
"./configure && make && make install"
Minus the quotes, of course.
after this is done, XMMS is now properly compiled to your kernel, and this should solve your problem. It will also have the MP3 plugin already installed, so you wont need to re-install that. Just find the executable binary and run that. Then all is good in the world of Fedora Core 2.

Hope this helps.

Hey,

I too had the same problem with my RH 9.0. I reinstalled as mentioned earlier in this thread. But the problem still remains. What could be the problem?

try physically downloading and compiling the source for the MP3 plugin

Make sure during compile you turn on the verbose switch, so that you can post anything that goes wrong exactly as it happened.

You can refer to the instructions with the MP3 plugin to figure out how to do this.

Tell me if this helps
