one option is installing mplayerhq from mplayerhq.hu but I haven't succeeded in installing it due to a few dependencies failing to compile.

theres two options, mplayer or xine... i prefer mplayer.. go to http://www.mplayerhq.hu/homepage/design6/dload.html and download one of the source files... To install:
1)go to your CLI (Command Line Interface) which should be konsole, xterm or something like that
2)go to the directory using this syntax | cd <dir> | cd .. (goto previous directory) and use the command ls to view whats in your current directory
3)type tar -zxvf "filename"
4)it will create a folder, cd into that folder
5)type ./configure
6)type make
7)type su and enter password for r00t
8)type make install

now in the command line, there should be a command mplayer, have fun!

You can add a rpm for XMMS so that it will play mp3's. This is available at http://www.icewalkers.com/download/L...ayer/1976/dls/

Note: i had to install by
rpm -i --force xmms-1.2.7-21.i386.rpm

Hope this is helpful

Jeff Smith

ps: when you start XMMS again you have to clear your playlist and readd all your songs to it

I have noida but XMMS comes with Red Hat Gnome if you chose to install it. I would update that and use that. I'm not familiar with mplayer but I did use mp3blaster until I ffound this patch. mp3blaster is a weak commandline mp3player and didn't even have a gui addon. It might be the same with mplayer. The easiest solution, I believe, would just be to update X Media Player as described before.

I don't know if you want to compile them, but I downloaded the rpms which made life easy.

I am running version 0.90, so I downloaded the following packages.

mplayer-0.90-1.i386.rpm
mplayer-0.90-1.i386.rpm
mplayer-0.90-1.i386.rpm
mplayer-0.90-1.i386.rpm

The packages have circular dependecies (except the skins I think) so you need to install them all simultaneously with the following command (logged in as root)

rpm -Uvh mplayer-0.90-1.i386.rpm mplayer-0.90-1.i386.rpm mplayer-0.90-1.i386.rpm mplayer-0.90-1.i386.rpm

After that you should have a helpful mplayer icon somewhere in your panel.
If not, run the gui with the command gmplayer from a console
