Any good MP3 players for rh9/1- Shrike?


Hello- just installed shrike, shows up as 10 during register attmept ;(*


ANyhow- I am easing into this and first thing I want to hammer on is listening to music, other than that this system is a web browsing machine...

Next will be cd ripping, etc, but for now I'd liek to lsiten to some of my mp3's ....

Any suggestions? Thank you in advance,

You can use XMMS to play MP3s, though you might need to download and install xmms-mp3 as an add-on, as I don't think RH9 comes with MP3 support out of the box.

Red Hat 9 is really old, consider getting a newer distro!

Thx nylex,

I actually running 10 (shrike), but when I tried to register it, it autoloaded the version as rh 9...

eird huh,?

Have you used any other free Linux distro's, do you have any recommendations? I'm not addicted to any one variety over the other- I'm re-entering the Linux community..


Thx-

Yes RH9 is very old and was discontinued several years ago. If you like the Red Hat stuff, you can use Fedora Core. Otherwise, any other distro is good; they are all "free" essentially. Major other distros include Debian, Ubuntu, Mandriva, OpenSuse, Slackware, Gentoo, etc.

There was never a Redhat Linux 10. Shrike was Redhat 9.0.
