I found a posting here that suggested changing my i/o under pref. to esound
that didn't seem to the trick.
Any suggestions would be appreciated
You need a better description of your problem. Sound does not work at all? Just MP3's? What does XMMS do when you try to load your MP3 library? ...things like that.
after opening xmms, I click file to add songs, xmms doesn't respond its as if it doesn't recongnize the mp3 file. I have tried several different one to make sure.
My os is suse 10.0.
Go to Yast and then Yast Online Update. Select the Multimedia Packs and click Accept. That should hopefully do the trick.

bryan tried your suggestion it appears to me that everything that can be loaded is. There were two multimedia choices I checked both of them.
Next I would suggest you download a full version of XMMS that includes MP3 support from the official XMMS website:
There should be RPMs available for the latest version.Registered Linux user #270181
thanks for the advice. when I was trying to reinstall xmms there were serveral missing file dependencies. So I found an alternative. I don't remember the location of the article but I did a search in the forums for installing mplayer on suse and the posting had step by step instructions for installation.
