XMMS on Red Hat 8.0....Failed dependencies??


I recently installed Red Hat Linux 8.0 on my system. I've been having some issues installing the RPM file that is distributed on www.xmms.org to enable XMMS mp3 play capabilites. Everytime I try to install the RPM plugin, I get a failed dependencies error:

error: Failed dependencies:
xmms >= 1.2.7 is needed by xmms-mpg123-1.2.7-13

However, with Red Hat 8.0 I have XMMS version 1.2.7. I am using the version of XMMS which comes with Red Hat 8.0.

Any clues as to what is causing this error, or how to fix it?

I appreciate your help.

Mark

xmms can play mp3's by default. you don't need any other plugin.

Red Hat 8.0 XMMS does not play mp3s....plugin needed

acid_kewpie,

xmms in red hat 8.0 does not play mp3s by default. you have to install an rpm plugin that enables mp3 support within redhat.

I've been having problems installing the plugins.

oh yes, i remember something about that acutally. well just force the install, as long as do defeinitely get decent results from "rpm -qa | grep xmms". a MUCH better solution would be to install it from source, or a standard rpm from xmms.org

souce didn't work out

I tried installing xmms from source, but that didn't work out....yet more errors. i think im missing some libraries.

anyhow, to force the install the correct command would be:

rpm --force *whatever package*

right?

Thanks.

no, you'd actually use --nodeps not force.
