Description Youssef Makki 2002-10-16 11:57:27 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
When xmms, with the xosd plugin installed from
http://psyche.freshrpms.net/rpm.html?id=111 , is launched from menu -> sound &
video it loads then just hangs. xmms loads fine if launched from a terminal.
I uninstalled xosd-xmms-1.0.4-fr1.i386.rpm just to be sure, xmms worked fine
after that.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install xosd-xmms-1.0.4-fr1.i386.rpm from freshrpms.net
2. launch xmms from menu -> sound & video -> audio player
3. xmms loads then freezes

Additional info:

Immediately after a fresh install of the xosd-xmms package, xmms will launch
successfully, but will crash when attempting to configure the plugin in the
preferences dialog.

This sounds like an issue with that particular plugin. Maybe it hangs when
stdin/stdout/stderr is not a tty?

In any case, this doesn't look like an xmms bug.
Comment 2 Youssef Makki 2002-10-16 13:08:54 EDT
I've always used this plugin (same version in all cases) and never encountered
any problems until xmms-1.2.7-13.p.
Just wanted to know if anyone else was experiencing this behaviour.
