     I installed Feisty 7.04 on my laptop yesterday night and
installed mplayer and totem-xine. When I try to run a music file using
totem it just hangs.
When I tried using mplayer from terminal
it froze too
it said

mplayer: could not connect to socket
mplayer: No such file or directory

then it proceeded to the following part
Playing Metallica - Turn the Page.mp3.
Audio file file format detected.
Clip info:
 Title: Turn the Page
 Artist: Metallica
 Album: GARAGE INC. (Disc 1)
 Genre: Rock
Forced audio codec: mad
Opening audio decoder: [libmad] libmad mpeg audio decoder
AUDIO: 44100 Hz, 2 ch, s16le, 128.0 kbit/9.07% (ratio: 16000->176400)
Selected audio codec: [mad] afm: libmad (libMAD MPEG layer 1-2-3)

After this it froze too.
Any ideas what might be the problem
I checked my soundcard /dev/dsp its working
