I can't seem to get to the radio url, what page are you playing from, and what does it say the specs are?(1) I have a Real Audio 8 Plug In, but my browser won't use it to play Netscape's radio stations. :-[
im working on it..... :P(2) I'm having trouble getting my XMMS to play online .wav files. Hopefully, someone here will guide me through it. I haven't been able to find any documentation to resolve the problem.
Microsoft are proprietary bastards, they want you to use their products full stop. thats why ms java comes installed with doze, it means you can't use the sun one.(3) My Mozilla browser, which came with RedHat 8.0, did not have a java plug in, so I couldn't use a Chat Room. I downloaded it. It wasn't hard, but Windows browsers come with java already, even if it is Microsoft java.
I think one of the reasons that java doesn't ship with linux is that it is a closed source product. and basicly it is 'morally incorrect' for distros to include it. this may be wrong - its just a guess...
see above comment on java(4) The browser did not have a Real Audio Player plug-in, and I had to download it. As I stated above, the browser doesn't play the plug-in when I try to access Netscape Radio.
care to elaborate?(5) I can't get my CD Player to play music CDs.
but did you have the freedom that you have in linux? i don't think so...I didn't have such problems with Windows. Everything worked out of the box, or so it seemed.
i learnt them, they're not really that hard..Another thing I don't like about Linux is that documentation is often inadequate. Newbies, such as me, try to follow instructions when installing applications, but (1) we don't know the tar commands,
experience is a big factor, i'd give it some time, soon you'll be a proand (2) sometimes the diections are lacking, or assume we have knowledge and experioence with Linux which we haven't yet acquired. >
feel better?Well, that's my venting for now!
