You are probably not using the right audio driver. Check the preferences and try selecting a different audio output. The two most common are OSS and esound (esd).

According to the xmms website installing the "arts" package is a work-around.

Whoops, that's to fix a segfault error,...sorry.

Compiling from new source fixed it for me
