since you have a segmentation fault... I can blame corrupt RAM or HD. since this happens consistently with one program, RAM is basically out. How about checking you disk for bad blocks? except for that, reinstalling the program 9maybe try a different source) is the only solution I can see.

Well, what I was getting at was uninstalling and reinstalling xmms; not linux entirely. You could be right, it may be a legitimate issue with the program itself. If you feel that's the case, then I would take watashiwaotaku7 up on his suggestion: fill out a bug report or send someone in xmms development a message about the problems you're having. They will probably want to know a lot of specific information about hardware, any changes to the system since install, and all that good stuff.

yeah, reinstalling xmms from a different source is a good idea...and if it works, complain to your local package manager.

Do you get any sound from your Redhat boxt at all. I dont user xmms on RH8... but am wondering if you dont have your sound card configured properly.. this could cause problems for xmms..

just a thought..

be sure that xmms is able to reach the music you are trying to play, make sure that youa rent trying to play it off of a drive that is not mounted or from a directory which you do not have permission to read
