I've not been having an easy time with xmms at all. The earlier
version I had ( .95-1) was* in the middle of playing mp3's
inexplicably. Now I have a newer version. 1.01-1 ( using the rpm from
the xmms.org site). The problem now is that xmms suddenly starts "fast
forwarding" the song in the middle of playing an mp3. I am running on
a Mandrake 7.0 system with celeron 366, 128Meg RAM, on-board c-media
8338 sound chip, a PCI Symbios 53c875 SCSI controller with a Seagate
SCSI HD ( I read on Deja that SCSI could be the problem
sometimes. I am not quite sure how though?). And yes, the SCSI card
and the sound chip ARE sharing IRQ's. But I don't see how that would
cause the problem I'm seeing??
It's quite annoying. I have been reduced to use an old pentium 75
running win95 as my "reliable" mp3 player. Deja seems to show a lot
of people having problems with xmms. Any hints would be appreciated.
