I was earlier using a modified redhat 7.2 distro. I was able to play mp3 in that but recently i installed the Redhat 9 and got the problems. When i try to play mp3 using xmms it say that that due to patent etc. the support for mp3 has been removed from this application. I thought they have removed the mp3 support from redhat so i removed the xmms rpm by
rpm -e xmms-1.2.7-21.p --nodeps
and then again installed the other xmms version which i had installed in my previous Redhat to play mp3 but after installing that when i play mp3 its seek bar was moving very fast and no sound was there, then i checked other application which make sounds.. there was no sound in the system.
then i decided to unistall the xmms rpm again.. and then again i installed the xmms rpm that came with RH9 from the installation cd. Now system sound is back but still i m not able to play mp3 in Redhat9. Plz. plz tell me how I can play mp3 in Redhat 9
