Hi,

nevermind, I found the thread... I'll play with things and give a report about whether this is fixed or not when I get back home (3 or 4 days from now)


Sorry to get back to this so late, just been busy with lots of other things.

Anyway, you may be right in that the error is not present as xmms2 was designed from the ground up. The problem isn't a subtle distortion. Everthing will play normally for a while and then the distortion will creep in and the song will be unlistenable. After it goes to the next song or after you pause and restart the song, the sound will clear up. Sometimes it comes back, other times it doesn't. It's very strange.

I'm really looking forward to seeing xmms2 in portage!

Best,

Alex

Thanks for the howto, plbe! The latest snapshot is working fine here. :D

bro, where did you get the files for the install?? I've searched high and low to no avail.

I can run xmms2 from the cli but that sucks, need a gui for music. :-)

woops btw for those files I mentioned you can grab them here http://code-monkey.de/projects/ruby-efl.html just emerge subversion and follow the instructions on how to get them


Typical --- the bitkeeper idiots are only allowing downloads of version 3.2.4 - whereas my ebuild requires bitkeeper 3.2.3

and subversion is blocked by apache2.
what a joke.

emerge subversion
Calculating dependencies ...done!
!!! Error: the >=net-www/apache-2* package conflicts with another package.
!!! both can't be installed on the same system together.
!!! Please use 'emerge --pretend' to determine blockers.

emerge -p subversion
These are the packages that I would merge, in order:
Calculating dependencies ...done!
[blocks B ] >=net-www/apache-2* (from pkg dev-util/subversion-1.1.1-r3)
[ebuild N ] dev-lang/swig-1.3.21
[ebuild N ] net-misc/neon-0.24.7
[ebuild N ] dev-util/subversion-1.1.1-r3

what a waste of time.
some of us poor bastards work 9-5, and try to have a bloody life as well. we dont have time for this crap.
it takes enough time finding decent applications, without having time wasted installing basic tools like this.

why cant developers stick to tools that are stable, freely available, and available **without hassles** across a wide range of platforms... it isnt that hard...

Hrm wonder why this isn't in portage yet......imho it should be for client development purposes....I submitted a bug but appears to have vanished :?

BTW for those interested a few new clients have popped up

wow... that client is (surprisingly) actually quite sexy & simplistic. A bold, but welcome move on the part of the xmms2 team.

it looks like there's a functionality-centric "medialib-ui" client, too. Sounds exciting!

It's too bad there are almost no screenshots of the clients - particularly of juxtapose and medalib-ui... How am I supposed to choose??

mirko_3: you're choosing stuff by the way it looks rather than by the way it performs? Tsk, tsk, tsk... BMP looks better than XMMS and yet XMMS beats it to a pulp... go figure :P

Why, of course, else how would I show off? :-P
Actually, I was wondering if there was a wxMusik-like gui, and screenshots are a good way to see that...

Hmmm... you got a point there (and yeah I was joking :P ). I like to show off without a GUI... "See? No desktop... Try _that_ on your windows box!" :lol: But of course, only a few are impressed... Since, yeh, eyecandy simply owns almost everything.

Thanks, it seems it's not what I was looking for... Anyone aware of a GUI similar to the wxMusik one (http://musik.berlios.de/html/screenshots.html)? It's similare to rhythmbox, in case you don't know it and are too lazy to click...

I couldn't resist and tried it... I realize that it's still beta, but does it give you any problems? I tried the console client:
Code:

xmms2 mlib addpath /mnt/shared/livesets/
xmms2 mlib addpath /mnt/shared/mp3/


Seemed to do nothing, although it says to do so in the wiki. So I tried:
Code:

xmms2 add /mnt/shared/livesets/*
xmms2 add /mnt/shared/mp3/*


That added some songs, not all, and half of them have the wrong tag (that of another file) and the other half has no tag at all...
