RH 9 - got it, love it - mp3 playback?

Post by kkenne » Sat, 05 Apr 2003 12:21:46



I couldn't stand it, so I joined RHN and downloaded shrike (RedHat 9).
 So far it's great.  Some features to look forward to: AA fonts in
Mozilla.  CUPS is default printing subsystem. KDE 3.1, GNOME 2.2, and
Bluecurve.  Just keeps getting better.

There are already a ton of add-on packages for shrike at freshrpms.net
(including apt for rpm).  This is what I used to get mp3 support, DVD
playback, and many other things for RH 8.  However, I am having
problems with mp3 playback.  It starts to play the song, and then
locks up xmms.  I assume this is a problem caused by the new threading
system (NPT).  Does anyone have any suggestions on how to enable mp3
playback in xmms?  Or, any other application?

thanks.

So THAT'S why I can't get into up2date with a demo account!  I may have to
break down and join as well... $5 a month isn't that bad I suppose. ;)

I was wondering the same thing. Will not pay the five bucks though. Real
easy way to get money, tell someone that an update is ready, make them wait
for days, but hint that the update could come real soon if only they would
pay...

I think you have to install xmms mp3 and xine dvd to get mp3 and dvd playback.

http://www.xmms.org now has the mpg123 plugin rpm for rh9 now, which will
allow mp3 playback.

Now that RH9 is released to the public, up2date works just fine for
free. I don't know if free updates are delayed, though.

Didn't work for me tonight at least for RH8.  I got a busy message and also
read something about a demo account and what is limited.  Not sure I like
that.

1. It`s IMPORTANT!!!

Muy buenas!!!,
Le escribo ya que tengo algunos problemas y dudas acerca de linux.
Espero que tu/Usted me pueda hechar una mano, ya que poco a poco me
estoy desesperando... He escrito muchsimos emilios a los diferentes
grupos de noticias, pero nadie me puede ayudar...:
Desde principios del verano del 97, llevo utilizando la versin de
S.u.S.E. Linux 5.2 (Krnl: 2.0.33, Xfree:3.3.2, con la version beta del
KDE.) Es la versin alemana que incluye 4 CD`s...
Mis dudas son:
1. ?Linux es compatible con mi procesador K6-2 a 350Mhz? Supongo que si,
ya que funciona,,, pero he odo algo por lo del cach de segundo
nivl...He odo que hace falta un patch para Linux que haga que Linux
utilice el cach de segundo nivel...?Es verdad?
2.En mi otro ordenador (un Pentium 133 con tarjeta grfica S3 Virge) he
conseguido hacer que funcione todo perfectamente. Todo, incluido el
entorno grfico...
Pero en mi nuevo ordenador (un K6-2/350 en placa ASUS P5A con tarjeta
grfica Trident 3DImge975 de 4 Mb) no consigo configurar el entorno
grfico. Cuando intento configurar la tarjeta grfica, con el programa
incluido en mi versin S.u.S.E. "YaST" o bien con el programa estndar,
me sale una ventana peque?a (ms o menos de 4cm de alto y tan ancha como
la pantalla) con mil lineas movindose de desordenadamente... Levemente
se v, que es el entorno grfico de "FVWM2"...pero en ese estado no se
puede hacer nada de nada...Me paso a la consola desde la cual he
ejecutado "startx" y presiono Ctrl&C...Desde la primera consola al
parecer no aparecen errores y parece estar todo bien...He probado mil
configuraciones diferentes de resolucin y colores pero nada,
tampoco...Mi targeta (Trident 3d Imge 975) est en la base de datos de
las targetas soportadas, pero aun as no la reconoce bien. En la caja de
versin de Linux pone que mi targeta est soportada, y ms alante pone
que estn soportadas experimentalmente y adems sin aceleracin... Esto
ltimo (que est en modo experimental) lo acabo de ver ahora y no me lo
imaginaba... <---puede ser que mi problema sea por los drivers??? A ver
si ahora me conecto, mando este mensaje y busco el driver
acutalizado...   Ahora que he visto que los drivers, para mi tarjeta
grfica, que incluye mi versin de Linux son experimentales me parece un
poco estpida haberte hecho esta pregunta... pero an as gracias por
leerla...
3. Por ltimo,: ?Sabes de algn programa para entrar en Internet por
RED? Para que desde el Pentium pueda entrar en internet con el K6. Tipo
"Internet-Share"....      Muchas gracias en adelanto, Daniel     --->

2. FTP & fXp programs in Linux

3. Please Help....it′s a very small thing!!!!.PLEASE

4. Solaris upgrade woes

5. Help me !!!!!! I have no Idea it′s crucial

6. Compiling Kernel+Modules

7. It`s IMPORTANT!!!

8. daily backups

9. Sound: MP3 Playback Problem

10. mp3 and PPC playback rates?
