Description of problem:
The default install of xmms segfaults when run. gdb provides no debugging
information. platform IBM thinkpad 390E ES1969 Solo AudioDrive. All other system
sounds work. Sound module loaded: esssolo1
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.type 'xmms &' from xterm window
Actual Results: xmms
You've probably found a bug in XMMS, please visit
http://bugs.xmms.org and fill out a bug report.
Expected Results: xmms should have loaded producing xmms window in x session
Out of curiousity, what happens if you move your .xmms dir out of the way?
Do you have any not-shipped-with-xmms plugins installed?
Same problem here. Clean install, user had no .xmms directory. No plugins/any
other external programs installed.

Just for the record, XMMS worked for me under 8.0.
Perhaps one of the users with the problem would be willing to rebuild XMMS
from SRPM w/ debugging? I can't seem to get anybody in #redhat on freenode to
do that and I don't have the problem to replicate.
Just a thought. -Ali
I've got the same segmentation fault as you do.
My work around:
- Install arts-1.0.3-1 on RH8.0 CD 2
- Install xmms-mpe123 rpm at www.xmms.org
- Disable the MPEG Layer Placeholder Plugin on XMMS
This should do the work.
Only the step 1 you mentioned is actually necessary.
I'm having the same issue here with a fresh install of RH 8.0 but installing
arts-1.0.3-1 appears to fix the segfault issue. Bad dependency in xmms rpm?
