I just rebooted having installed libx11-6 from
http://people.debian.org/~daenzer/ and have not experienced any lockup
problems with xmms 1:1.2.10+20061101-1etch1
Ok, good to know. So there's probably something wrong in the way xmms
uses libx11. But, I wouldn't expect it to lockup like that.
There's a new xmms in unstable (1:1.2.10+20070401-1), but the changelog
looks pretty small. Most of the upstream development seems to go in
xmms2 nowadays. Could you try one/both of those with libX11/XCB?
Sorry, but the new xmms in unstable doesn't seem to want to work with
real-time priority (I've reported the bug) and xmms2 doesn't appear to
support a MIDI file plug-in. On this machine (266 MHz PII with 256 MiB
RAM with an EMU10K1 soundcard with hardware MIDI synth), I would like a
player that supports real-time priority and playback of MIDI files.
