No sound from gxine with ALSA
I've just moved from OSS to ALSA, and gxine doesn't generate sound anymore.
Mixer settings are Ok because I can play CDs with xmms or cdplay without
audio.driver:alsa in ~/.gxine/config.
When I try to play streaming audio, gxine connects to the server but doesn't
generate sound. strace shows that gxine is looping on write to a unix socket,
fd 3. If I try to execute any other operation, it freezes completely, and
strace shows it's blocked on a futex() call.
I googled hard on 'xine alsa sound' but found no mention of this weird
behaviour. Much to the contrary, the comments were invariably: xmms and xine
work Ok with ALSA.
Is there something ashamedly obvious that I'm missing ?
Thanks for your attention
