Description of Problem:
XMMS will not play mp3's on my computer. It's not that you cannot hear the
sound, xmms just sits there and does nothing when I click the play button.

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

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. use xmms to play an mp3

Actual Results:
xmms won't play

Expected Results:
xmms should play and I should hear the sound

Additional Information:
All other media players work. I can watch videos in xine, for example.

Running 'redhat-config-soundcard' works as well - I can hear Linus.

I have an ASUS A7M266-D motherboard with an on-board soundcard.

The kernel is using the cmpci sound module that shipped with Limbo.

Is this in KDE? Or in GNOME? Which Output Plugin is configured in XMMS?

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2002-07-14 21:41:24 EDT
Works for me as well.

This is from within Gnome.

I've tried changing the output plugin to all four available options, with no

might be something related to esd. I get this once in a while on redhat 7.3

I'm a bit baffled now. Deleting the .xmms directory, and a reboot of the machine
appears to have cured the problem. Perhaps the sound module got mangled when the
machine booted before. Weird.
