Description Jaroslav Franek 2011-04-30 14:04:44 UTC
Description of problem:
XMMS does not go to the next item in the playlist when using ALSA output plugin. This makes it useless for playing playlists.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xmms-1.2.11-12.20071117cvs.fc15.x86_64

How reproducible:
Always when using ALSA output plugin

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a playlist
2. click on a song to play
3.
  
Actual results:
After playing a song, the XMMS does not go to the next in the playlist, nor it "stops": the progress button remains indefinitely at the rightmost position for the song that was played.
XMMS does not crash or hang. It just plays one song at that is it.


Expected results:
Enable to play songs on the playlist in sequence, using ALSA output plugin.

Additional info:
Works OK with PulseAudio output plugin, but on old hardware PulseAudio has significant CPU footprint, while ALSA does not, hence I prefer ALSA output on my old system.

Comment 1 Neil 2011-06-04 23:05:14 UTC
I'm seeing the same thing on a HP Pavilion DV8120CA laptop.  Same version of xmms; playback hangs at the end of each song, but will continue if the [>|] button is pressed.  Works with the Pulse plugin; it's only ALSA that fails.

Comment 2 Stuart R. DeGraaf 2011-07-10 14:20:32 UTC
I see exactly the same behaviour as Neil and Jaroslav
Fedora 15 2.6.38.8-32.fc15.x86_64
xmms-1.2.11-12.20071117cvs.fc15.x86_64

Comment 3 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2011-07-14 18:44:58 UTC
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

Comment 4 Tom "spot" Callaway 2011-07-14 21:27:07 UTC
There are all sorts of spiders and horrible things in this code, but I'm looking at it.

Comment 5 Tom "spot" Callaway 2011-07-15 20:18:42 UTC
Okay, I have a fix, but the ALSA plugin code, like much of ALSA itself, is still incredibly touchy. I strongly encourage you to consider the xmms-pulse output plugin instead.

If only it were not unmaintained:

The ALSA plugin developers of Audacious are very active, btw:

Comment 10 Neil 2011-07-16 22:44:28 UTC
New version still has the same problem!  Do I need to restart ALSA (how?), or reboot?

% rpm -q xmms
xmms-1.2.11-15.20071117cvs.fc15.x86_64
% uname -r
2.6.38.8-32.fc15.x86_64
% cat /etc/fedora-release 
Fedora release 15 (Lovelock)

Comment 11 Jaroslav Franek 2011-07-17 12:13:09 UTC
The fix works for me.

@Neil: Have you tried to update xmms-libs package as well?

The comment #9 tells you to update xmms package. I tried, but noticed there is xmml-libs package of the same version-release. For some reason, however, the xmms-libs was not picked up by yum when I tried yum update xmms. So I did

# yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update xmms*

Seems to me that xmms package is missing rpm requires for specific version-release of xmms-libs though these two packages are built from the same src.rpm.

Comment 12 Neil 2011-07-17 12:38:45 UTC
> @Neil: Have you tried to update xmms-libs package as well?

Ah, that was what I was missing!  I didn't see any mention of the xmms-libs package, and I had totally forgot that it existed.

xmms is working correctly now; thanks everyone!
