Hey Forum-

I just ran an emerge sync and emerge -uD world and among other things it upgraded alsa (drivers, utils, etc...) and my XMMS version.

alsa -> 1.0.8
xmms -> 1.2.10-r13

It did forget to reinstall the mpg123 xmms-plugin which I figured out, but now seemingly at random xmms will just crash when listing to mpg streams or mp3's off my HD.

I'm running a 2.6.9 kernel. I did do a reboot to "reset" everything. I didn't actually install the new kernel (2.6.11) and /usr/src/linux is still pointing at the old kernel, so no changes on that end.

Hmmm...okay, I did do some testing..it seems that it's actually puking out everytime I load a page in Firefox (1.0.1) that has a Flash animation in it. I didn't have this problem prior to the upgrade and I routinely would visit sites with FLash animations and Flash sound. They would even play nicely together and I would hear both. Any thoughts on how to fix?

I'm using the EMU10K1 driver on an older SB Live!

What should I be investigating? XMMS? The alsa-drivers? The Flash is just a library, not a whole lot to reinstall. Not that I believe the Linux Flash version is any great shakes, but asking Macromedia for help would, I'm guessing, be an excersize in futility.

Thanks for any help / pointers.

You can try the xmms-mad plugin for playing mp3s. Just uncheck mpg123 support and check mad in xmms. You can either emerge xmms-mad or put mp3 and mad in USE and emerge -uD world.

Yeah, the MAD plugin was actually installed, but it doesn't work with Shoutcast streams, unless I'm missing something. XMMS won't play streams when the MAD (libxmmsmad) is installed. That's why I reinstalled the mpg123 plugin, so now I have both. I did try ti disable the MAD library, but that didn't do anything either.

I'm having a very similar problem (perhaps the same problem?). XMMS is crashing...and so is nearly anything sound-related on my machine. It's a new install and everything is up to date. I also have an older sb live card on the system. It seems that audio programs crash when there's more than one program generating sound on the computer at the same time (e.g., xmms crashes when flash is running). Here's the versions of the apps that are crashing...

xmms 1.2.10-r13
amarok 1.0.2
arts 1.3.2 (I get crashes with and without sound enabled in kde)

I'm using ALSA and the latest 2.6.11.4 kernel.

I had the same (or a similar) problem when I installed and started using xmms-alsa: everytime I played a sound while xmms was running, it'd crash. I didn't find any solution but got around it with using the OSS output plugin.

I've the same problem. With the OSS plugin, it works, but this way playing multiple sounds concurrently doesn't work. Up to now, I've used the dmix-feature of alsa.

Using the OSS output plugin has fixed this problem for me as well.

Yeah, I swtiched to the OSS output as well and now I can hear multiple sound channels at the same time (gmplayer and xmms; for example) so I "guess" I was using OSS as the default prior to the upgrade and it didn't pick that up when I upgraded. *shrugs* I just don't remember

Got the same problem. Skipping a song makes all my mixers crash in KDE3.3.4. I've tried Kmix and alsamixergui. Both crash.
I really do not want to use anything else then the alsa plugin because of software mixing.

I also have a sblive! and use the emu10k1 alsa driver. It seems alsa is a tad b0rked. Tried mplayer and fiddling in the KDE soundsystem resulting in a kmix and mplayer crash.

Now it works! :D

I've emerged the newest (unstable) version of xmms-alsa an now it seems, that the bug isn't there anymore.

Code:
emerge =media-plugins/xmms-alsa-1.2.10-r1


At the same time I also updated xmms-mad to version 0.8 to fix the pause-bug (see: https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=85348). I don't think that this has anything to do with our problem.

I hope this helps.

Fixed it.

http://alsa-project.org/

grab the latest alsa-lib sources, the beta

emerge -C your alsa lib you have installed

build those with ./configure make make install

The latest version in gentoo is broken
