    It would help if you could tell us which linux-distro and which filemanager you are using? (useally konqueror or nautilus since these come with kde/gnome)

    I don't understand about not getting xmms. Is it installed and won't play anything or is it not installed at all? Again, which distro? 9.0 sounds like Suse?

    If he's American then Linux 9.0 means Redhat for 90%
    Anyway, the guy needs to fists start using Google, before he asks questions in the forums...

    try downloading amarok - i have migrated from windows and amarok seems to me to be the best music player available. supports playlists and can edit tags and stuff. Don't know where to get it from - I use a debian based system (ubuntu) so i can apt-get. Try a goolge search for amarok.

    Hope this helps

    Why not use xmms? Do you hate the interface or something?
    You dont need a pocket protector or thick glasses to be a geek.

    Welcome
    Here is how I proceed to got music on a new computer under linux:
    first I type in a console
    lspci | grep audio
    it gives me the audio controller of my pc:
    Code:
    Multimedia audio controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8233/A/8235/8237 AC97 Audio Controller (rev 50)
    Then I search on google the linux module to use for such a controller and finally I try to modprobe it (here it snd_via82xxx) if it does not work either it is compile into ur kernel (coz alsa which manage sound under linux is now into da kernel) either not compile and must be recompile a kernel (rare on a standard distro like mdk or suse).
    In general it works and I got sound...

    Has it ever occur to anyone who posted that this person doesn't even have the sound driver installed?

    Try entering this code into the terminal interface.............

    Code:
    /dev/sndstat
    It will allow you to test the sound and pick a driver for you're computer.
