Description of problem:
If you click on the pause button with xmms, then clicking on pause
again doesn't unpause the audio. Clicking on play starts the paused
track from the beginning. Equally "xmms --play-pause" doesn't toggle
between playing and pausing as it should.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start up xmms and select the alsa output plugin
2. Start playing something
3. Run "xmms --play-pause" to pause the audio
4. Run "xmms --play-pause" again
Actual Results: Sound does not continue.
Expected Results: Sound continues :-)
I'm not sure if it's necessary to select the ALSA output plug-in, I
didn't actually try this with either esd or arts but since both of
those give me considerable grief for other audio applications I do
rather tend to avoid them in favour of clever stuff in ~/.asoundrc.
You don't need to run "xmms --play-pause" you can just click on the

Fix for pause problem
This bug is fixed in the xmms CVS sources. This patch is just the alsa output
plug-in patch. I just added it as patch12 to the xmms source and applied it
after all the other patches. It works a treat. The "play/pause" button on my
laptop can now be configured to work!
Built into rawhide as 1.2.10-10. I'll do the same in RHEL4 once it's had some
rawhide testing. Thanks for getting the patch.
This bug might be related to bug 116709 by the way.
I've verified that 1.2.10-10 fixes the problem for me, too.
