having this irritating problem with mp3 playback with xmms in fedora 8
the system is fully updated at the time of writing.
yum install xmms xmms-libs xmms-mp3
when I try to play the mp3 files from xmms it opens the file and no playback is shown. the playback bar doesn not move at all. no sound, no nothing.
when opening xmms from terminal and trying to play mp3's it displays the message:
Message: alsa_setup(): Cannot set mmap'ed mode: Invalid argument. falling back to direct write
I also have audacious and amarok, the only one that plays mp3's is amarok.
What could be the problem? any help would be greatly appreciated.
