Mandriva 2006 problem one....

Recommended Posts

Hi

I just upgraded from LE2005 with Mandriva 2006. Several things got mixed up......... Problem one;

 

I can't get my XMMS to run at all. When clicking the Xmms icon, nothing happens at all.

First I didn't get Mplayer to work eighter (only in root), until I stopped all audio apss. and then stopped and started the ALSA module. Then I got Mplayer to work again ?!?! But my XMMS sems to need some more configurations :-|

 

Problem 2;

 

Everytime I reboot or start up, Mandriva allways load my web-browser with a page I visited days ago and my mailapp., kontact ??? hmmm... I allways get some problems llike these with each upgrade.....?!?

 

Thanx !

Best regards

Did you install xmms-mp3? Also, use the menu editor to remove the word 'soundwrapper' from the menu item for xmms so that it reads 'xmms' only.

For Xmms:

open menudrake and go to the entry Multimedia>Sound>Xmms and click on it. And change the command-line on the right (it's something like soundwrapper xmms) into /usr/bin/xmms and click on save.

 

Xmms should work now.

Hi !

Thanx for reply !

I've tried removing the soundwrapper text in menudrake (done that once before), but that didn't work this time...., but I urpmi xmms-alsa which i read in another post and then it worked again !!

 

Still I got this problem when everytime I boot/reboot my linuxbox, it loads my web-browser with this page I visited days ago, and also my mailapp. "Kontact" ??

Is there a way to remove this. Kinda annoying......
