So nobody knows about internet radio for linux? I found a program called "rhythmbox," but it says it wants osssink or alsasink, gnomefssrc, volume, mad, and vorbis.

Where can I download these? I've already queried google on it.

mplayer plays videos with sound, it is just xine that's giving problems. I prefer using xine because it is the only media player that plays cds.

Hmm, I see. You may be able to get some XINE stuff from URPMI as well.

you will have to reinstall it with gui support. that's done by

./configure --enable-gui
make
make install

the best way of doing it is, without any doubt, following the mplayer documentation:
http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/HTML/en/index.html

this is the gui part:
http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/HTML/en/gui.html

EDIT: usually, using gui may slow everything down. I've got a lot of audio/video sync problems running mplayer with gui. To start mplayer with gui, type gmplayer instead of mplayer.
