    Try typing urpmi xmms as root, if you have root access.

    I would suggest using urpmi like I mentioned above. But if you have a tarballed file uncompressed, just go into it using the cd command:
    Code:
    cd xmms-1.2.7
    Of course, replace the directory name "xmms-1.2.7" with whatever it's actually called. Then do
    Code:
    ./configure
    then
    Code:
    make
    and as root do
    Code:
    make install
    That should be it. Just run
    Code:
    xmms
    and it should work.

    But seriously, using urpmi would probably be easier.

    This is a dependency problem. XMMS relies on glib. Instead of doing it this way, humor me and do this:
    Code:
    su -
    [Enter root password]
    Code:
    urpmi xmms
    That's it, you'll have XMMS installed. It'll resolve dependency problems, such as glib.
