Redhat 9.0


I've just installed RedHat Linux 9 and I can't listen mp3, mpeg, wav files

I think it's a real stupid XMMS =)

Who can help me?

I had this same problem with my version of RH9. It wasn't XMMS. XMMS is a clone of Winamp. I am guessing you have the SBLive! Value card? I upgraded to the 2.6.1 kernel and compiled ALSA and the EMU10K1 driver into the kerenel. To my supprise i got sound! Then not to long after that i heard RH was going to stop support in April, so i downloaded Mandrake 9.2 yesterday. So far i like Mandrake alittle bit better that RH9.

I had Mandrake 9.2 but I really don't like it...I think that's the only problem with RedHat, ==> xmms
You will see that Mandrake is NOT GOOD...

I believe RedHat disabled support in XMMS for mp3 due to patent(?) issues. You simply have to install an rpm plugin from here .

Simply install the rpm package as root, and you should be able to play mp3s

Hope this helps

Also, check out http://www.freshrpms.net. The RPM you need so you can play MP3's is on there as well.

In the future you might want to start using ogg vorbis files instead. They are supposed to be better quality, relatively the same size, and (best of all) patent free.
