What kind of soundcard are you using? Might need the xmms-alsa package.

rpm -e xmms-alsa

What is your output of this:

rpm -qa | grep "xmms"

the card i got is an Aureal Vortex using AU8820 driver.

you are the man. that command worked. could you tell me why? i used this driver with MDK 9 before and i didn't have to reboot the first time but for practice i reformated and reinstalled everything and got everything to where i wanted it (this time in only a few hours. i swear this linux keeps getting easier and easier) well i tried out the sound and well i had to reboot. got it to work this time after the boot but then xmms still gave me the error above. so i uninstalled and reinstalled the latest from sourceforge. couldn't get it to "make" so in an attempt to not stress i just went back to the rpm that is on the install disc. (btw it is the latest xmms version) when i re-installed xmms shouldn't it have executed the alsa package?? why did i have to do that??

From my understanding Mandrake just doesn't install it by default which in most cases its needed to work with particular sound cards.

Glad that worked for you though.

Unhappy xmms plays mp3 files too fast

Hello out there!

I am a bloody Linux Newbie and I installed KNOPPIX 3.2 on my Laptop. I was surprised that everything worked just fine - only xmms plays my mp3 files a few milliseconds too fast! LTJ Bukem sounds like a smurf...

I donī t have the slightest idea what plugin is to konfigurate to fix this.
Can u help me, please?

Many thanks!
