I just installed the Hardy Heron. It's nice, I like.

But now I'm trying to install XMMS, my favourite MP3 player for Linux. But - wha? It doesn't exist, so it seems. It's not in my list of available programs.

I went to packages.ubuntu.com, but all I can find are plugins for xmms. Not xmms itself. I installed the package called "xmms core package," but to no avail. No new program appeared in my programs list.

So I tried the obvious: sudo apt-get install xmms2

Success - or so it seemed. The command line looked like it was installing the program. But when it was all done, still no new program in my programs list!

So what gives, is xmms no more?
