I have network in my home between an xp machine and my red hat 9 machine. I can view the files and access them all. I have a collection of mp3's that I ripped from CD's on my xp machine that I can access over the network, but when I try to play MP3's Red Hat tells me that this feature has been disabled, how do I fix this?
I am trying to run the RPM now and it wont respond xmms keeps giving me a dialog box labeled "load files". It gives me a list of files in my home directory to of which are mp3 files and when I click on them they don't play at all. And when I click play the same dialog box appears.
The RPM is in my home directory. It is an icon depicting a box that says RPM. I just click on it and it gives me a root password promt, which I type in and it accepts. Then the HD runs for about a second and nothing more happens. There was no status bar or any indication of an install. What am I doing wrong. After I do all of this I click on an MP3 file and it opens xmms, but doesn't play anything I hit the button that looks like this >, I assume that that is the play button, and it opens up a dialog box titled, "Load File". It gives me choices of files from my home directory, two of which are MP3 files, I try to click on one of them and it doesn't play, there is no error message or anything it just simply doesn't play.
I used the link you placed on this thread. I downloaded the file and ran it. It asked for a password again and I gave it what it wanted. It opened a dialog box and a progress bar appeared. I assume that it installed. When I click on an MP3 file it still opens up xmms and does absolutely nothing. There is no error message it just wont play. It opens up a dialog box that is titled, "Load File". I click on the MP3 file and it still does nothing. If there is no fix for this is there another MP3 program I can download an RPM for?
