Description Bill Mill 2002-12-10 16:28:11 EST
Description of Problem:
When using the default xmms and esd with the Red Hat 8 distribution (versions
1:1.2.7-13.p and 1:0.2.28-1, respectively), the playlist occasionaly stops,
giving me an error dialog that it could not output audio. When I hit play,
everything works again for a while. This happens with varying frequency, but
it's normally about once an hour. I'm using the Gnome desktop, my soundcard is
an AC97 which is (i believe) using the i810 driver. I have a Dell Latitude C610
laptop. Here are the messages logged to /var/log/messages when the error occurs:

Dec 10 16:02:31 localhost modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sound-slot-1
Dec 10 16:02:31 localhost modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sound-service-1-0

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open xmms with a playlist
2. hit play

Actual Results:
Occasionally, play stops and I must close an error message

Expected Results:
It should play until I hit stop

Additional Information:
I have attached more of my /var/log/messages file which pertains to the loading
of the sound card driver on boot, as well as a screenshot of the error message.

I had the same occasional problem.  I noticed that my esd was being started 
with the option "-as 2" (free audio device after 2 seconds inactivity) and I 
also noticed that my xmms defaulted to a pause of 2 seconds between tracks.  I 
thought there might be a conflict there, so I changed the esd option to "-as 5" 
in /etc/esd.conf and restarted esd.  Xmms has been running perfectly for me 
ever since, so it seems to have worked for me.  Hope this helps.
