Configuring Xine to play sound.

I have my soundcard configured properly, and XMMS plays sound perfectly, but I still can't get Xine to play sounds. Are there any tips or whatnot to help me configure it to work properly?

try xine-check in a terminal and if that doesn't win, then check your audio configs (select "Master of the Known Universe")

if you're using kde as the desktop environment, choose aRts for the sound plugin.

gnu noob - Just ran it, and it couldn't find any plugins, so I am guessing that it didn't get the right location. I guess I should do as it says and install the package with xine-config?
