Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i just installed xmms ver 1.2.8 under RH9.1. Put in all the patches i could find off the site. Now previously to this it was 1.2.7 and it worked perfect. now when i load up and try to play an mp3, it converts it to wav and stores it on my home folder.
i looked for a patch for 1.2.8 also thinking that it might just have to be upgraded. but i cannot find one anywhere and the official site doesn't make any reference about it either from what i could read.
ok, i have xmms installed already with that file, and all the plugins that are on the site. But when i try to play mp3's it converts them to .wav and stores them in the home directory. But doesn't play the mp3 at all.
ok, so i am trying to go back to 1.2.7 . Now when i try to uninstall i get a msg saying that the package isn't installed. So i was wondering if i can find the rpm for 1.2.7 if i update it, will it go ack to 1.2.7 or will it just say, newer package installed or somethin like that.
the older version of xmms should be on your install cds. and yes, you'll probably get a newer version error. install with the -Uvh --force --nodeps flags. that will work as i have done this myself after upgrading from 1.2.8. also don't forget to install the xmms-devel package as it has the headers/source if you want to compile other party's xmms plugins.
rpm -Uvh --force --nodeps xmms*.rpm
assuming you know how to mount your cdrom and navigate to it's mount point directory.
