hi you linux experts

yes, I've got a problem with XMMS. The story goes like this:

Yesterday I reinstaled my Mandrake 9.0 because of bootable problems. Well at the begging everithin was just perfect - no problems. I tried to install karamba with xmms support. Well, I compiled and instaled it. After that, when I tried to run my XMMS and nothing, it just didn't want to run :(. The next my step was to try and find WHY. I run it in the console and it yelded a problem:

** WARNING **: snd_mixer_attach: No such file or directory

Can someone of you help me, and tell me how to fix it? I removed all packages which are concluded in some way with xmms, and then reintalled them. It didn't help me :(

Naw, please HELP. ideas how to fix it?
