If you want to use XMMS, XAnim and/or Xine to play media files from the File Manager, you will have to remove the useless Java Media Player that has grabbed the file associations for a bunch of file types. Either uninstall the whole thing:
# pkgrm SUNWjmfpor just get rid of the file where the actions are defined:
# cd /usr/dt/appconfig/types/C # mv sdtjmplay.dt sdtjmplay.dt.not
If you have any problems installing or using the packages, please check the Frequently Asked Questions page.
Many packages require some of the library packages from the Solaris Software Companion CD, such as libaudiofile, libesd, libjpeg, libpng and libtiff.
In order for MIDI to work with XMMS and SDL, you will need to install a set of patches (instruments, samples) in /opt/sfw/lib/timidity. A complete set of GUS patches can be found at the SDL Web site.
