I use those two apps frequently - listening to XMMS right this moment, matter
of fact - and have never had that type of problem. I'm using an up-to-date
woody box, PII 300, 64 megs RAM, kernel 2.2.16, Netscape and XMMS package are:
ii navigator-base-4 4.72-16 Navigator base support for version 4.72
ii navigator-smotif 4.72-16 Netscape Navigator 4.72 (static Motif)
ii netscape-base-4 4.73-32 Popular World-Wide-Web browser software (base su
ii netscape-base-47 4.72-16 4.72 base support for netscape
ii netscape-java-47 4.72-16 Netscape Java support for version 4.72
ii xmms 1.2.1-helix3 Versatile X audio player that looks like Winamp
The XMMS package is from Helixcode - I'm using Helix Gnome with Sawfish.
The Netscape packages are straight off Debian's site via apt-get - I had
gone to 4.73 but had problems with it so went back to 4.72.
Just to be sure of myself, I just fired up Netscape. Got it grabbing the
weather radar loop now. XMMS is also playing - Mason William's "Classical
Gas" - without a hitch. Looks like it just might be that patch giving you
