You should go to the xmms site and find out what other things you might need to get to run MP3s. Personally, xmms runs all my different types of music files including mp3s. You just must be missing some things it needs.

I believe they have, if I remember correctly. I used Redhat 9 and I seem to remember something coming up in a window when I ran xmms saying that mp3s weren't supported. But I thought the workaround for this was getting the xmms-mp3 plugin.

yes IIRC that is what i did the first time around, just install the codex for it and away i went.


last time though i didnt tell the OS to not remind me about this again, this time i did. i have all the codexs for mp3s installed and working, but xmms still will not talk to me.

is there anyway i can find were RH locked that down in the kernal or some .conf file or something so i can try to edit it?

that or is there an other MP3 player that i can use to get around xmms?

Something better than kaboodle is JuK, JuK allows you to choose a folder that your mp3s are in and will play all of them in there, whereas kaboodle only allows you to play files and you have to click on each one to play them.

tried normal rpm first got missing libs so i tried source, and get this:

Quote:
rpm -ivh juk-1.1-2ark.src.rpm
error: cannot create %sourcedir /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES

Quote:
rpm -ivh juk-1.1-2ark.i586.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libasound.so.2 is needed by juk-1.1-2ark
libid3-3.8.so.3 is needed by juk-1.1-2ark
those are the libs im missing. would they be in the src.rpm? or do i need to spend many more hours looking for files that require more and more dependancies.

im about to just toss this idea out the window. way to much waisted time trying to get RH to play stupid music files.

Have you tried this page here for xmms? http://havardk.xmms.org/dist/xmms-1.2.7-rh8-rh9-rpm/ It has an rpm for Reh Hat 9 that says it will play mp3s.

xmms-mpg123-1.2.7-21.i386.rpm is already installed. did not get it from that site, but did get it from an other site offering the same thing.

it did work last time i had RH9 running on that laptop. this is why i think RH has doen something with the kernal to lock me out this time round due to how i answered that pop up notice about licenses.

*sad*
