Full Version: Linux Noob: Kaboodle
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
I have managed to mount my windows partition in Red Hat 9.I can open files such as office files using open office, but when i come to open media such as mpeg, avi, mp3 red hat uses kaboodle. This program opens, but does not play anything! The same happens for the red hat media player, but something comes up about mp3 copyright. Any ideas guys?
Go here:

Download the latest xmms mp3 rpm (currently xmms-mp3-1.2.7-21.p.fr1.i386.rpm)

Open a terminal window.

If you are not root, use the command:

su - root

Then install the RPM with this command:

rpm -Uvh xmms-mp3-1.2.7-21.p.fr1.i386.rpm
You might consider installing apt. Which has the latest Multimedia files for RH9.
Ok now i get:

warning: xmms-mp3-1.2.7-21.p.fr1.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID e42d547b
error: Failed dependencies:
xmms = 1:1.2.7 is needed by xmms-mp3-1.2.7-21.p.fr1

Where do i get the dependency file?

If you wan't to listen to mp3, and don't want a lot of troubles, do the following....

download apt get rpm for RH9 [if your distro is Red Hat 9]

1.enter console, goto the dir you've downloaded the apt-get if you're root it'll be in /root if you're user /home/[user name]
2. then in console type : rpm -ivh [thenameofthedownloadedfile].rpm
3. then type apt-get install xine
4. once done type xine there you have it a FULL feauted mp3 player, + movies etc....

5.howto create a icon ?
a. go to the desktop right click new launcher and browse , locate xine
chose a name for it, and an icon and ok

The dependency file can be found here:

A helpful note here...... if you're told you need to get a package for dependency reasons...... copy the name of the file needed and put it into google and do a search. Most likely one of the first few pages will contain a link to the RPM.

Anyway, download the necessary dependency file and save it to the same directory as that other file. If they are the only two files there then you can do "rpm -Uvh *.rpm". if not then you will have to do "rpm -Uvh [firstfilenamehere].rpm [secondfilenamehere].rpm"
This means, that it's already installed
enter console and type : xine
Command not found.... hmmmmm sad.gif
Concerning the apt install ...

after you finished the install, did you do:

apt-get update


apt-get install xine
Cheers guys, it now works a treat, now wondering how you set the default player to xine?
If using gnome, use the Menu - Preferences - File types and programs ... or in a termnal type:


If using KDE (why? ... just kidding, biggrin.gif )

Open konqueror, then select Settings - Configure konqueror

then select File Associations

In both cases, you must be the root user
