I have red hat 9 and an integrated soundMAX soundcard on my motherboard. When i try and play mp3s i dont get any sound, but all other sounds work fine on the system. I downloaded and installed the latest version of xmms but im still not having any luck. Any ideas?

As far as I know (i'm not a redhat user), Redhat, by default, doesn't come with MP3 support. According to an article on OSNews, you can download and install this xmms package to enable the mp3 plugin.

Ok, i installed the rpm, restarted and its still not working. When i open an MP3 it looks like its playing it, the bar graph jumps around for a second, then stops, but there is no sound. Also the timer that counts how long the song is goes really fast, so im guessing something still is not working right.
