play around with it. its not hard to find xine in the gui


One suggestion: get the codec pack from mplayer. Doing so will greatly increase your video codec support.

well, now there are three possibilities.

one is that VMware isnt connected to your sound card

one is that you havent run alsaconf as root

one is that your missing codecs you need, but I doubt that would be an issue with cds




Run alsaconf as root.

make sure the cd and the sound card are both accessible by your virtual machine, and try that again


you can get the codecs here:

http://www3.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/rel...061022.tar.bz2

or choose another mirror under the CODECS section of this page
http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/dload.html


As far as what to do with the codecs, see if there is a readme file with instructins, but i just extracted mine to /usr/local/lib/codecs/ and stuff just started to work

I am running slackware 12, so that should work for you, but if not consult the docs.
