As you can see I just successfully installed libXpm and still it says it can't find it...

Any ideas on how to resolve this?
TIA

Solved.

Apparently it would not install from the /tmp direcory.

I moved everything back to /home, executed ./configure, make, make install from a directory there and it says it installed system-wide from there...

Permissioning problem?

/tmp is world writable by default I believe...

OTOH, I was logged in as root user doing all this...

Is there something about Debian that it will block system-wide installs from /tmp....seems like there would be for security reasons...

I imagine that I could have moved everything to /opt and installed from there also...

Maybe this will help someone else down the road.

Not solved...

After all that getting it compiled and installed it has wreaked havoc with the system preferences...specifically the file associations for streaming audio....PLS files...

I keep getting the message that whenever I click on a playlist that the deault player is not installed...

I deleted the plugin installation (best I could)...apt-get remove xmms...deleted byhand tall the associations in KDE preferences...

Reinstalled the regular XMMS package...uninstall, reinstall....

I'm ripping my hair out!...No matter what...wehnI click on a playlist I get the error message....

FInally I saved the playlist to desktop...clicked on it there...XMMS starts and plays the remote stream with the error message MESSAGE: DEVICE: DEFAULT.....that's it nothing else to specify what the problem is....

Does anyone have any idea what I need to do to get this resolved? Beyond a complete system re-install (which I'm so frustrataed at this point I'm ready to do yet still reluctant as this is a QUAD-boot)?

EDIT: p.s. I was getting a message about libmikmodso.2 earlier but solved that by finally loading the package

EDIT2: Here's the exact message, it seems to be from KDE;

Download Error - /tmp/shoutcast-playlist.pls could not be opened, because the associated helper application does not exist. Change the association in your preferences.

As I said I've worked over the preferences repeatedly to no avail...it's as if KDE is not saving the changes?
