rpm -e xmms-alsa
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??
