Red Hat 9 and XMMS


Red Hat 9 says that due to licensing problems, XMMS is not installed with MP3/MPG support by default... what is the best way to deal with this... just go to the XMMS site and get the latest RPM's ... ?

or could i use RPM's from Mandrake ?

i downloaded the patch like you said, seems to have worked pefectly...

only trouble now is that i can't hear anything.... i had this problem first when i installed RH9, after i applied the patches however it started working... at the moment it's not working... someone suggested a different method ALSA... any idea on what i have to do there....

thanks

Hi,

I'm using RedHat 9 also, and had the same problem like the topicstarter.

What helped for me was installing the mpg123 package. Just search for it at rpmfind.net or another place. This installs the functionallity to play mp3 with programs like xmms, but also with other programs.

For the volume-control, i opened a terminal and used "aumix" to setup the volume of my card.

Hope this helps for the other members.
