link works, but the download link on the page is broken. :(

Also, the GIT servers, including snapshots, have been completely overwhelmed for at least the past week. Anyone know if there are any mirrors?

Maybe they got one? http://git.xmms.se/snapshots/ is up again, but there seem to have been some significant changes... I modified ycarus's ebuild to grab a recent snapshot from the new proper directory, and ebuild * digest worked fine for the ebuild, but nothing beyond the dependencies will build, when I get to xmms2, I get this warning:

Quote:
>>> emerge (1 of 1) media-sound/xmms2-0507081714 to /
!!! Files listed in the manifest do not exist!
xmms2-0507032156.ebuild


...not sure what's up, though...

Alright, now it emerges fine with the ebuild modifications. Here are the updates I made to Ycarus's ebuild.

Please note, that xmms2 now has a slightly different naming schema also, and I altered ycarus's name so that the ebuild filename itself should now include the full, 4-digit year. You should name the ebuild something similar to the title of the build you want, my build went fine naming the file "xmms2-200507201845.ebuild"
Code:

# Copyright 1999-2005 Gentoo Foundation
# Distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License v2
# $Header: $
# Nonofficial ebuild by Ycarus. For new version look here : http://gentoo.zugaina.org/
# This ebuild come with modification from Beber
# and a very tiny alteration from jxn

A quick version bump for xmms2 - DR2 has been released and is all looking nice. A load has been fixed since dr1 so it's definitely worth an update. On a slightly more personal note juxtapose will be going 0.1 as soon as sourceforge tell me i can host tarballs there, and I should have a site up so you can all look at a few more recent screenies

very nice. I used juxtapose and it seems to be the most stable of the frontends I could get working (gxmms2 wouldn't compile for me for some reason)...I think you've done an excellent job on it, even if it's not my kind of UI.

Cheers, theres a site up now too - http://juxtapose.sourceforge.net
As for compiling gxmms2 it could just be a problem with git which went unnoticed for a little while, and has now been fixed (the HEAD wasn't symlinked), or it could be that you need to change the makefile so the include dir is /usr/include/xmms2 rather than /usr/local/include/xmms2.

Might I also add that, given the evidence in the screenshots, you've got good taste in music!

Seems that the snapshot page has moved, yet again. Anyone know where the new one is?

/Edit: Found it right after posting:

I emerged xmms2 and it's dependencies:

Code:

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating dependencies  ...done!
[ebuild  N    ] media-sound/madplay-0.15.2b  USE="nls -debug -esd" 0 kB
[ebuild  N    ] media-libs/flac-1.1.2-r3  USE="ogg sse xmms -3dnow -debug -doc" 1,484 kB
[ebuild  N    ] dev-db/sqlite-3.3.4  USE="-debug -doc -nothreadsafe -tcltk" 0 kB
[ebuild  N    ] dev-util/scons-0.96.90  0 kB
[ebuild  N    ] media-sound/xmms2-0.2  USE="alsa flac mp3 oss python vorbis -aac -curl -ecore -gnome -jack -modplug -musepack -ruby -samba -sid -speex" 0 kB [1]

Total size of downloads: 1,484 kB
Portage overlays:
 [1] /usr/local/portage


Then I run xmms2-launcher. I get xmms2d started. Next I add direcotry to playlist:
Code:

xmms2 radd /path/to/directory


But when running
Code:
xmms2 play


I get nothing (no sound at all). Note that I have alsa working and there is sound in Xmms(1).

When I start xmms2d in verbose mode I recieve errors about not finding right plugin when trying to add songs to playlist. That goes for mp3's and also for example which comes with xmms2 in ogg format.

What is wrong? What plugins must I have to hear music in xmms2 with mp3's?

I can't seem to find this in portage yet. How did you emerge this?
Code:
 emerge -s xmms2

doesn't give any results.

Thanks,

Fej

It's not in portage, you'll have to use an overlay or a custom ebuild.

Does anyone know the status of xmms2 right now? I haven't heard much about it since I first heard about it a few months ago and the news updates on www.xmms.org are half a year old.

EDIT: looks like http://planet.xmms.se/ is a better place for information about xmms2.

Is their a script like xmmsinfopipe for xmms2 yet like their is for xmms? I would think it would be easy to make one since xmms2 has the info thing built in =/

EDIT: NVM got conky to show what song xmms2 is playing

If any one wants conky to show you what song it is playing add this to your .conkyrc

Code:

${color #00b5ef}XMMS2$color
${color #00b5ef}Title - ${color #00b5ef}${execi 10 xmms2 current}

I love having a CLI-only player available, especially when I have a lot of people in the house. Then I can open up the machine to anyone for aMSN and FireFox (that's all they know how to use on my Gentoo system :D ) and not worry about them fucking with my music, plus it uses virtually no resourses, which is always good :)

In any case... Just like XMMS 1, every so often the player goes nuts and speeds up my music to about 800%, causing it to fastforward through that and up to 10 of the next songs in only seconds... Gets a little annoying. At least it doesn't crash like the original.

I'll just stick with Amarok for now...

Xmms2 runs great but I noticed when I start playing a song with it my cpu idles around 5% =/ xmms1 never got above 1% when playing a song =/

Never the less, Xmms2 kicks ass for being CLI and not pure GUI!

Can you just clarify what you mean when you say that your cpu "idles around 5%" when playing a song; do you mean that 5% of your cpu is idle, i.e. xmms2 is consuming ~95% of cpu? Or did you mean that xmms2 consumes 5%?

I ask because when I start playback xmms2 consumes ~40% constantly, and sometimes climbs up to ~90%. Does anyone else have this problem? XMMS2 does work very nicely for me apart from this issue.

1.8GHz AMD Athlon XP 2200+, 512MB RAM
vanilla-sources 2.6.18_rc5, alsa 1.0.12rc1
xmms2 0.2 DrFeelgood (using the 0.2.5 ebuild from http://x4x.sourceforge.net/ebuilds/)

It idles around 5% of my CPU being used when playing a song.

Is anyone here interested in maintaining a gentoo overlay for xmms2 and its various frontends? It'd be useful to have a central place that is easily findable since I'm currently asking myself where I can find ebuilds for all of it :)

A quick update on the CPU usage problem I was having above. I narrowed it down to the alsa device I was using (plug:surround51) because the CPU usage was fine with the default device - but obviously I didn't get the sound coming out the correct speakers with that device. Using a combination of aplay -l and aplay -L I tried various devices/subdevices on my soundcard (Audigy 2 ZS, emu10k1) and was able to find something that worked well (plughw:0,4,0). xmms2d now consumes ~1% when playing back a file 8)

I'm guessing that the high CPU usage was down to XMMS2 resampling the output to be able to use the plug:surround51 device.

Just installed 0.2 Dr. Gonzo from the Ycarus ebuilds. All went well on the installation.

However the next day upon rebooting, the client couldn't find the xmms2 daemon. After much frustration, I found out it was due to the XXMS_PATH being set to the wrong value. It was something like:
Code:
XMMS_PATH="127.0.0.1:7777"
(or something similar, sorry forgot to copy it while I was debugging)

Now, i've set it to the proper value for myself:
Code:
XMMS_PATH="unix:///tmp/xmms-ipc-trevor"

This is kind of a duct-tape solution though, as I dumped this into the enviroment variable /etc/env.d/99xmms2 and ran env-update.

Does anybody know of a better solution, or why this problem even cropped up in the first place? If not no biggie, as I at least have music playing now as I type.
