Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

My problem : In Mozilla (1.2.1) I have RealPlayer8 working to some degree : It plays the video's ok , but when I want to use it for playing MP3-files on websites , all I get is a blank screen .
As an example:robhalford.com
On this site , I can play the video's ok , the intro plays fine , but every other soundbit is just a "no-go".
Been juggling with the mime-types a bit , but to no avail....
Well , I tried that too , but the links to the mp3s won't even let me choose which program to use.
They simply take me to a blank page where it says stuff like "buffering ... 99%" in the bottom-bar.
How do I make Mozilla use another app for resolving those files?
I do recall , having it up and running once , when I was still using SuSE pro 7.3 , but I'm baffled as to how I managed that now....
I also tested Plugger(4.0) and on the testing-page everything went ok(save for the c64-soundfiles and the word-docs , but that latter one is due to the fact I uninstalled abiword and has nothing to do with my current problem)
when you go to edit->preferences, there is a tab somewhere about helper applications. If there is an entry for mp3's remove it. You might also try uninstalling plugger and other plugins first - I never had satisfactory results with that thing.
The mplayerplug-in-deal didn't pan out properly ; when I had that one installed , not a single sound/video-link worked anymore. Even the ones I got working before...
RealPlayer still poses me a little annoyance , though;
When I click a link to a specific mp3 , a dialog-box pops up , asking whith what program to open it.
Somehow , I haven't been able to find out how to set that to /usr/lib/RealPlayer8/realplay by default.
I have to type that everytime again. (or browse to it)

Yes ; It can play mp3s
and ; Yes : I do get that box.
NO : I can't get mozilla to use what I type there set as a default , so for every friggin' mp3 I want to hear , I have to re-type the entire path again.
(Ok ; "Copy&Paste" works too , but still....)
