Find the pid with ps -aux and then kill it with the kill command, kill -9 <pid>

How are you installing the plugin?

Try installing from the command line like this:

rpm -ivh packagename.0-0.rpm

ok well i got that thing killed and the rpm was installed but the mp3s are buzzing so bad almost like my speakers are blown but i know they are not blown because they sounded perfect before i installed redhat 9
i use the soundcard on my motherboard do you think it could be a hardware issue? i have a cheap soundcard in my drawer but i don't know if installing it will make a difference.. any comments?
