> I am using slink with a 2.2.8 kernel on a PC164LX. I recently decided that I wanted to use this machine to play mp3's, so I got a soundcard and installed OSS and got things rolling. I was able to use dselect to install mpg123 and play mp3's fine like that, but whenever I tried to use gmp3 I get no sound whatsoever. I looked at gmp3's documentation and found that it is a frontend for mpg123 so I maked sure that worked correctly, but now I'm at a dead end. I am getting no error messages from gmp3 and only after hitting play twenty or thirty times will the counter even run on the gui. Unfortunantly even when this happens I am getting no sound. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Am I using the wrong mp3 player?
I tested it and it looks like it's broken. When I find the time I'll try to
fix it... But that doesn't help you, so I recommend using gqmpeg or x11amp
if you want a mp3 gui. These work, at least on my system.
