i think fsck wont work for swap block because it looks for the file system ext2,ext3 while swap itself has its file system type of swap

Hey craig,

thanks, bro. But if you actually read the thread you'll see that flapjackboy and I have already dl'ed and untarred the file to the correct directory. At least, I have. I have also pointed the preset loader at the file in question. Now, what I don't get, in "Configure Equalizer" for Directory preset file (dir_default.preset) and "File preset extention" (preset), well, what is this dir_default.preset thing? We extract the file to the home directory, to .xmms - a hidden file that the loader in xmms doesn't see. Huh??

And another thing, it's supposed to be renamed when it's extracted to 'eq.preset', right? Then what's with dir_default.preset? I get that 'dir_default' might mean directory file '.xmms' to the program, but if the file is in the '.xmms ' directory then it should be loaded, right?

I feel like I'm chasing my tail here.

The file in my xmms home folder is named eq,preset. All I did was untar/extract it open xmms click Graphic equalizer>Import>WinAmp Preset and imported the file.

So I'm not sure what problems your having sorry.

Try following the steps here: http://www.linuxloader.com/modules.p...pid=28&page=21

Yeah that's crazy. I found this:

http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?p=500267

and it has you load the file to /usr/lib/xmms also. Still don't work for me. I'll get it in there--somehow. I'm thinking about using wine to setup winamp, then importing the presets that way. I can't find a EQ Preset file in a winamp .eqf anywhere, so far. I suppose they'd be there. Any body got a clicky link or a way to send 'em to a fella?

Thumbs up Fixed: XMMS Presets won't load

craig, you actually supplied the solution without knowing the answer. After all that, I dl'ed the file from your link (LinuxLoader) and started XMMS to find presets!!

Of course I had to know why... Open 'em up and compare. Seems MY particular XMMS prefers commas to periods as delimiters for the Preamp and Band0-9.

So, if your XMMS won't load presets and you have tried the eq.preset file FROM the XMMS site:

http://www.xmms.org/misc/winamp_presets.gz

with this header:

;
; WinAmp EQ presets for XMMS. converted by Urpo Lankinen <wwwwolf@iki.fi>
; Do whatever you want with these. I don't care. No warranty
; expressed or implied. (And if you blast your speakers with these.
; It's Nullsoft's fault anyway =)
;

then go to the site:

http://www.linuxloader.com/modules.p...pid=28&page=21

linked above in craig's post and save the file linked there RIGHT TO the .xmms directory, open it with your favorite text editor and look for this header:

; This file must have no extention rename it to eq.preset

; WinAmp EQ presets for XMMS,

; Place this in the hidden xmms directory in your user directory like,

; /home/phil/.xmms

; open xmms and the equalizer presets should be there

;

and you should be GOLD.

J
