What did you do to install it? was it from the source (./configure, make, make install) or with an .rpm? If it was RPM you'll need to install the libglib-1.2-devel (or something like that) version if you want to compile programs against it.

So which version did you install? Xmms looks for Gtk-1.2 and it's Gtk-1.2 which needs Glib-1.2.

it should be on your CD's..If not go here and you can get almost anything you need....RPM''s

I went through the process of installing XMMS the other night. I just downloaded the RPM, ran it and was informed that a few other things needed to be installed, put in the CD's and was up and running in no time.

After using XMMS i would like to find something that works better. I have 1000 plus MP3's that are correctly tagged for using MusicMatch Jukebox in windows but i have noticed numerous sorting problems in XMMS. If anyone could recommend a program i would appreciate it.

Remove all your media using the software media manager located at

Menu > Configure > Packaging > Software media manager

Then remove them all

Step 1 > Click Add
Step 2 > Click 'Removeable device'
Step 3 > Enter the following informtion

Name > Installation CD 1 (x86) (cdrom1)
Path or mount point > removable://mnt/cdrom/Mandrake/RPMS
Relitive path to synthesis/hdlist > ../../Mandrake/base/hdlist1.cz

Now, for the second disk do steps 1-3 again, but use this information below, instead of the information above.

Name > 'Installation CD 2 (x86) (cdrom2)'
Path or mount point > removable://mnt/cdrom/Mandrake/RPMS2
Relitive path to synthesis/hdlist > ../../Mandrake/base/hdlist2.cz

For the third disk, do steps 1-3 again, just use this information below, instead of the information above.
Name > International CD (x86) (cdrom3)'
Path or mount point > removable://mnt/cdrom/Mandrake/RPMS3
Relitive path to synthesis/hdlist > ../../Mandrake/base/hdlist3.cz

Now you should have 3 things on your list
Installation CD 1 (x86) (cdrom1)
Installation CD 2 (x86) (cdrom2)
International CD (x86) (cdrom3)

Now click update, and click check all 3 of them, then udate it just to be sure that its all done right, then you're done, to install software from your disks (Sound software, graphics software, servers, etc..)
go to
Menu > Configure > Packaging > Install software

Itll make a list, check what you wanna install, click install, and it should ask for you to put in a disk, it susaly asks for all 3 disks, cus it doesent know which CD has the stuff u wanna install on it, so it searchs each one till it find what you want.
