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 hit the pause key, and output stops. But when I hit play or pause again, the || pause symbol turns into the play triangle... but playback doesn't resume. I can scroll about in the song, timer changes, but no playback. Have to hit play again, and the song starts from the beginning.
Are you using KDE? If so, I guess its possible that during the time the song is paused, ArtsD kicks in and grabs /dev/dsp, thus preventing XMMS from accessing it. If that is the case, you can install a xmms-arts plugin, that will make XMMS use KDE's sound server).
If thats not the problem, and if you are using ALSA, try telling XMMS to use that instead of OSS as its sound output (you may have to install a xmms-alsa plugin).
