second. dont install the plugin by double-clikking on it. open a terminal and su-
then go to the dir that you downloaded the patch into... if you're using gnome and downloaded it to the desktop, itll be:
once you're in the dir with the file, type:
rpm -Uvh patch's-name
you should be fine with that...
if not, click the little square in the upper right hand corner and go to options -> preferences
then go to the "plugins" directory and make sure that the output plugin is set to the device it needs to be.
I personally use OSS because its small, and it works without giving me any shit about it. You can use Alsa, if you want the 2.6 kernel i guess you better get used to it. Redhat, being the bomb-r0x0r distro that it is, should have loaded OSS for you at install. If you clicked the "play test sound" after install and you heard the ii-V-I progression guitar thingie then you should be set. you can also look at your sound card config by going REDHAT --> system settings --> sound card detection and see whats happening there.
let us know what happens with it.
