Posted by lucky13 on April 13 2008,22:01Does the sound work with anything else (like shoutcast streams)? What soundcard is in your laptop?
The default flash plugin from Adobe won't work with the version of Firefox in the base. Upgrade Firefox via MyDSL and use the flash plugins from MyDSL.

Posted by lucky13 on April 14 2008,14:57Please go to www.shoutcast.com and click on any of the links. XMMS should open and play one of the streams. If the sound works, then you just need to configure audio output for your sound card (might need to set it to 'digital audio extraction' in preferences for xmms) so it can play CDs.
What kind of laptop? It will help to know which card it uses to process audio. At command prompt enter:
lsmod | grep sound
Also use this:
Look through the tabs for your hardware profile if you don't know what your laptop has. Until we know the hardware, we really can't help with the software.
Posted by ^thehatsrule^ on April 14 2008,15:45Can't he just use the tone generator with xmms?
Also, make sure you are using Flash v7.
