xmms has moved to extras in fc4
Comment 2 Matthias Saou 2005-08-22 11:50:49 EDT
This looks quite similar to this existing bug report found upstream :


Could you confirm that the workaround works for you?
Comment 3 Matthias Saou 2005-08-26 09:34:12 EDT
This bug is composite/gtk1 related anyway, so I'll close WONTFIX and copy the
quote from the above bug report (already quoted from elsewhere) :

Q: After enabling the Composite extension, XMMS refuses to start!
A: True, the gtk 1.x gdk part does not work too good with the Composite
extension and i do not know a patch to correct that.
Furthermore - any gtk 1.x application won't work too good with the xcompmgr,
because it will allways appear additive composed (if you place the gtk 1.x
window over a white background, you won't see anything
At least for XMMS, the Beep Media Player (xmms gtk 2.x port) is a good solution.
It does a very good job and gtk 2.x looks much better anyway =)

Development time is much better spent on beep-media-player or on the new xmms2.
For now, people who want to use the double size feature of xmms should disable
the composite extension in xorg.conf.
If ever someone comes up with a patch for the issue, I'll gladly include it in
the Extras xmms package.
