well, i guess it's a problem with the KDE soundserver... i can't recall the command right now, but there is no sound because the device-file is already busy...

RedHat withdrew support for MP3 playback since Version 9. You need a package named xmms-mp3*.rpm to play MP3 files in RedHat 9. For this, you can download the RPM file from the link below and install on your system.

Like gtkfreak said, RedHat 9 does not come with MP3 playback support.

Go to
http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshrpms/redhat/9/xmms-mp3/

Download the file called
xmms-mp3-1.2.7-21.p.fr1.i386.rpm
to your $HOME directory

bring up a terminal window and become root by typing
su [ENTER]
enter your root password
pwd [ENTER]
make sure you are in your user's home directory otherwise you will have to specificially point to the rpm file when using the rpm command to install it

Now install the rpm binary with this following command:
rpm -Uvh xmms-mp3-1.2.7-21.p.frl.i386.rpm [ENTER]

Now run xmms again and have fun listening to your mp3s under linux :P

Hope this helps!
