    when you try to open songs? do you mean double click them, add them to the playlist or command line
    Code:
    xmms song.mp3
    ?
    if you're double-clicking them, you might not have the .mp3 filetype associated with xmms. you should do a right click and open with, and then select XMMS. i think there should also be an option something like "always use for this filetype".
    if you're adding them to the playlist, you then have to physically press play a lot of times. if you're doing it from the command line, then i don't know.
    let me know which it is!
    thanks

    No, they wont open at all either way. I am using Redhat and they removed mp3 support, any one know how to patch it back in?
