Note copied from front page of xmms.org
if you are using Redhat 8 and the supplied RPMS of XMMS you will find
that it is not possible to load any mp3 files. Redhat was supposed to
have a placeholder plugin informing you of the change, but that seems
to have gone missing.
Available >> here << is some additional information and a mpg123 RPM
for Redhat 8 installation of XMMS.

Hopefully, I've made myself clear on this subject, since Redhat
apparently failed to get their message through.

When you go to the site >> here << will take you to a link to get the
new RPM version of XMMS.  Just do a "rpm -Uvh xmms..." to install it.

On my system I had to set the output plugin to be "OSS Driver 1.2.7"
and now it works fine.
