Description of problem:
After launching xmms for the first time, xmms needed to be changed to
use alsa sound. I selected the alsa outputs, then tried to play an ogg
file. Xmms outputted the following error within gnome terminal. 

Unable to connect to UNIX socket /tmp/.esd/socket
Unable to connect to UNIX socket /tmp/.esd/socket
Segmentation fault
You've probably found a bug in XMMS, please visit
http://bugs.xmms.org and fill out a bug report.
Xlib: unexpected async reply (sequence 0x5f4b)!

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
arts-1.2.0-1.5, xmms-1.2.9-5.p

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch xmms for the first time (no .xmms directory and files in $HOME.)
2. Click on play. Note that after file selection, xmms wants a viable
3. select the alsa sound output
4. Try playing an ogg file again.

Actual Results:  1. OK (great! This clears up another bug submitted)
2. Normal behavior. Alsa is not set as default output (It should be
defaulted to alsa.)
3. No problem applying alsa output.
4. This crashes xmms in a very short time.

Expected Results:  xmms to launch, output driver already selected for
alsa. Player to output sound in xmms.

Additional info:

To check if xmms was being negatively effected by arts, I removed arts
with the --nodep flag and relaunched xmms. I was able to play an ogg
file normally. I am using the GNOME desktop.

When launching xmms without arts installed, the following output is
displayed in the gnome-terminal.

libartsc.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

xmms will play correctly.

I then reinstalled arts, removed the .xmms directory, relaunched xmms.
after setting output to alsa, selecting ogg, selecting play, xmms
crashed with the above error.

When I relaunched xmms, no files to play were selected, arts was still
selected as the output. I also got a dialog box that said some other
program may be blocking your soundcard.

closing down xmms gives me the below error to the gnome-terminal.

Message: artsxmms_open(): Unable to initialize aRts: can't connect to
aRts soundserver
warning: leaving MCOP Dispatcher and still 146 types alive.
Message: artsxmms_open(): Unable to initialize aRts: can't connect to
aRts soundserver

.again, removing arts allows xmms to function. If arts is reinstalled,
it will now not cause xmms to error (unless you remove the xmms
directory and go again.)

I think there is an option someplace that tells you 
whether you want to pipe all sounds true arts or not. 
I can't remember where though.

Comment 3 Jim Cornette 2004-02-25 03:13:48 UTC
After rebooting my machine (updates were applied for latest arts and
xmms). I tried to simulate the problem again. I was unable to get xmms
to segfault.

My theory is that there was still something loaded in memory, after
the programs were installed. The problem is corrected, if you clear
whatever is lingering in memory.

My prior tests were ran without restarting X or rebooting. The same
kernel version was used.

however, when tested with the latest kernel-2.6.3-1.100. I get this
error. (.xmms directory removed again for test.)

Gdk-WARNING **: shmat failed: error 22 (Invalid argument)

I will boot back into kernel-2.6.3-1.97 and see if xmms works properly.

Comment 4 Jim Cornette 2004-02-25 03:31:09 UTC
With the kernel-2.6.3-1.97 kernel. I do not get the shmat error. I
tried using the 2.6.3-1.100 kernel again and xmms will launch. It just
displays this error message before it launches. This happens everytime
xmms is launched from gnome-terminal.

Alsa and xmms are OK. Bug closed to free developer resources for more
