XMMS/Noatun won't play music
 
I'm running RH 8.0 on a Dell Precision laptop with an "810CA/CAM AC'97 Aduio".

If I go to System tools -> soundcard detection, I see that RH has detected the card, and the "Play Sound" will do just that :)

However, if I try to play MP3's in either XMMS or Noatun, whenever I click the "Play" button the program opens the "File open" dialog (as if I hadn't already chosen an MP3 to play).

Anyone know why this happens?

License issue.
No mp3 support in RH8
www.xmms.com for rpm fix

wtf .. that is one lame idea.

it's xmms.org btw .. xmms.com is taken by some spammer.

Thanks, that worked after a reboot :)

I would've moved to Ogg Vorbis if it hadn't been for the fact that I've just ordered a Creative Zen player .. hmm, wonder when that will get ogg support ..

Sorry dude...about the link, I'm sleepin here. You don't need to reboot after installing software. Does noatun have a similar patch? Don't use it myself.

Oggs kick ass. Same sound 25% less size.
