    XMMS


    XMMS ends up freezing ALOT when I play internet radio stations or sometimes when I play something else. How do I fix this? The only way to kill it is by going into ksysguard. Its really annoying.

    Any other media players I could use? And are EASY to install.

    You could try RhythmBox

    http://www.gnome.org/projects/rhythmbox/

    I noticed you're using knoppix so a simple

    apt-get install rhythmbox

    should do the trick. Although you may need to add the DAG repository to your apt/source.list to install rhythmbox.

    Again, per your above question these are some to try:

    RhythmBox
    Amarok
    or
    XMMS (as you already have)

    XMMS also requires ALSA, as you can see here: http://www.xmms.org/download.php so make sure it is installed if not you'll have to do an

    ap-get install alsa-utils

    ALSA does not usually install by default.
    Also consider installing gstreamer and streamtuner if you don't have them already.
