    How to Install MP3 support for XMMS in RH9


    I am using RedHat 9.0 in my system.

    Mine is dual boot system with windowsXP. But i am having my MP3's in windows.

    I mounted the windows partitions to access my MP3's. But after that when i opened the XMMS it said that it cannot support MP3's. Previously i am using RH8 based system. It supported MP3's. Do i have to switch back to
    RH8 based system or is there any other way to get MP3 support in RH9?

    He is correct. Get the RPM from the bottom link, run it, and everything will work great. I did the same thing
