xmms installed, but hangs at runtime

xmms installed, but hangs at runtime

Post by Boris » Wed, 20 Oct 1999 04:00:00

I just installed the port for xmms and was looking forward to checking
out its new features. For those of you unfamiliar with it, its the new
"x11amp" with a name change.  xmms.org
    After I ran 'make install', it seemed to go in fine, but when i try
to run
'xmms' at the command prompt, it just hangs there. There is no window
nor any error mesg. I'm a bit confused. I am using WindowMaker 0.60. gcc
version 2.95.1 19990816 (release)
any body have similiar problems?

I had the same problem.  I guess it happens because xmms doesn't adapt well to FreeBSD's scheduler, but I could be wrong.

Install xmms out of the port tree /usr/ports/audio/xmms, and it should work better.

Email the authors of xmms and tell them to port it ;)

Hope this helps

1. XMMS-cdread working, but XMMS plays CD at max speed.

i am finally able to hear audio through xmms-cdread ( i am on a g4) but
only through esound, not through OSS ( i just hear static in OSS).
however, when i play, the cd spins up and it does not read a  1x cd speed,
it reads as fast as it can (because it has been tricked to read digital
audio) hw do i slow this down. the CD drive in my G4 is the DVD_RAM BTO
option that shipped with the older G4s. Also, coud the problem be in
ESOUND, because i switched from OSS?
