Description CoreDump 2001-08-17 22:01:02 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i586)

Description of problem:
mpg123 (v 0.59q) has some problem when used concurrently with an X
environment with audio enabled.
The previous version (from the package mpg123) had no such problem, but it
didn't use the libao package either.

This new version doesn't display mp3 tags either when playing a .mp3 file.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start enlightenment
2. enable sound or produce an event which generates a sound
3. start mpg123
4. starting it again will make it work, but now enlightenment will be
stripped of sounds	

Actual Results:  Directory: ./
Playing MPEG stream from 01-APOCALYPTICA-Path.mp3 ...
MPEG 1.0 layer III, 192 kbit/s, 44100 Hz stereo
Error opening libao oss driver.

Expected Results:  The previous version was able to play music concurrently
with the X sounds.

The previous version displayed mp3 tags.

Comment 1 Joe Drew 2001-08-27 23:02:58 UTC
This is because esd has the sound driver open. The next version of mpg321
(0.2.0) will enable compile-time default sound drivers; I suggest Red Hat uses
--with-default-audio=esd when configuring mpg321 0.2.0.

Comment 2 Joe Drew 2001-09-23 15:28:47 UTC
mpg321 0.2.0 is now released.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2002-01-29 03:04:53 UTC
0.2.3 will be in the next rawhide, with the configure change mentioned - thanks!
