My XMMS is a new install. Since I sent in the bug, I have managed to invoke
XMMS as a plug-in in Konqueror by clicking on the "listen" button on
various Shoutcast streams. XMMS takes about 1 to 2 minutes to
automatically connect to the shoutcast server at which point it plays
normally provided one does not click on the "play" button in the XMMS
If "play" is clicked, XMMS shuts down. Bug report # 191536 on XMMS
mentioned XMMS freezing when "play" is clicked. So far, all I have tested
is XMMS on streaming audio. Haven't tried it on a cd yet or playlists.
Might be just a quirk of 64 bit "sarge" installation. Trying out Debian for
the first time on a new machine so still learning the ropes. Along with
SuSE, Debian is a great o/s. The less said about Windows XP Home Edition,
