I'm a beginner, i have installed Chubby puppy to myHD. Now I want to install XMMS using available package (v. 1.8?) trough "install alien package" but always failed. The message said something like "... should be installed at the top folder like /root but your software wants to install anywhere else..." Can anyone help me?? Thanks Rolling Eyes

Use the dotup downloader to install xmms.
With dotpups you just press & go like an .exe
With puppy's unleashed packages you can install as an alien package.

Heaven is on the way, until then let's get the truth out!

yes, use the dotpup.

If it does not work:
type "xmms" in a console.

If you get an error like "Bad Match", then edit /root/.xmms/config

Replace the lines there with this:


If it still fails, try to run it with another WindowManager than JWM. Use Icewm for example.
