My file server also has my speakers hooked up to it, but it doesn't have a monitor hooked up to it usually. I'd like to be able to ssh into the machine and play music through it but that doesn't seem to be working. I followed the solution given here --> http://fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=43889&
but that hasn't helped. I've used XMMS, which just shuts down as soon as I start it with no error messages, and I've used mpg321 with the following error:

Can't find a suitable libao driver. (Is device in use?)
When I actually have a monitor and keyboard attached to it and am working on it locally, I know XMMS works (I've never tried mpg321 locally), so I'm flustered.
Does anyone have any suggestions or is this even possible?
