    Must I now give up XMMS?

    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?

    Yes, XMMS is obsolete and its removal from the repos was long overdue. A very good replacement is Audacious.

    i installed audacious through synaptic
    and ran it in terminal and it says
    Segmentation fault
    what does that mean?

    Does Audacious have an EQ?

    You don't have to give up XMMS. I use it in Hardy. This may help you: http://blog.sartek.net/2008/04/insta...rdy-heron.html
    And don't install XMMS2, it has no GUI yet, it's a terminal based program.

    XMMS2d itself will never have a GUI (it is intended to run as a daemon). But, fear not as there are already many clients written for XMMS2 if you want to use it.

    It does but was broken just before Hardy's release. I'm working on getting this updated with a fix soon.

    In the synaptic package under amarok, xmms-kde 3.2.2 is listed. Is this the same xmms you guys are talking about or something different? (Yes, I'm really new with this stuff).
