Xmms Rh9


I just recently installed RH9 and when I ran XMMS it said that redhat had removed MP3 support in XMMS. My question is how can I get MP3 support back for XMMS or what is another good program for playing music files?


thanks

Why don't you just download xmms from their site and compile it? That should fix your problem.

You can grab the rpm here
That works as well
It says RH 8 but it works with 9 as well

I dled the tar.gz for xmms when I tried to ./configure I get the error
"configure: error: *** GLIB >= 1.2.2 not installed - please install first ***"
But the problem is I have GLIB-1.2.10-10 installed. Anyone have any ideas why this is happening and how to remedy it?

thanks

yes ... or go directly for the RPM. I installed it and it works well.
Have fun,

If you don't have them installed yet, go to Freshrpms.net and get "apt" and "synaptic" installed. Apt is the debian package manager and synaptic is the gui end of it. You can use that to update your system and add packages that you don't have like XMMS.

Getting a prebuilt RPM package is the fastest way:

rpm -ivh http://download.fedora.us/fedora/red....rh90.i386.rpm

Make sure you copy the full URL, not the displayed one which is cut.
