Hi there!

I have got some troubles wih my linux (RED HAT 8.0)
I can not play MP3
My screensaver does not work
My Samba is not working (I do not know how it works)

I hope you can help me out.

You can also mail me:

This might help if you don't have an MP3 player or it's broken.

Let us know if this works

It would help us a lot if you could provide us with error messages etc.

Have you looked at any of the Samba guides on our Guides Page ?
When setting up samba there are a couple of things that can get in the way... can you actually start smbd?
BTW Redhat does not include MP3 support for xmms. Must be afraid of copyright infringement. I assume thats what you were trying to use.


What are your exact problems with samba? Did you select samba while installing linux?

Have you looked at the documentation at If you have a firewall running it will block samba.
