Slackware 10.1 XMMS error


For some reason whenever I run XMMS I get the following error:
sh-3.00$ xmms
*** glibc detected *** free(): invalid pointer: 0x4067dd99 ***

Now it was working before. I have tried to search google with no luck. I run Slackware 10.1 with current updates using Slapt-get and swaret. If anyone could help, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanx

Nevermind I found it:

I have to reinstall xmms from source because of a problem with the current xmms. Thanx

You do realize they stopped developing XMMS, you should switch to Beep Media Player which is based off of xmms...

I thought they did. I mean its been a year since the last version change.. and its starting to get a bit too old and featureless...

I switched to amarok, and i like it quite alot.. so i guess its bye bye xmms for me.

I don't know why they didn't port it to gtk2 themselves. I use it occassionally but Amarok seems to do a better job.

Well, it seems some people think like you and that's why Beep Media Player (thanks trickykid) is out there (it's based on XMMS but uses gtk2).

I never had a problem with XMMS in -current, but I've just installed the version from CVS and works good and now I can finally configure the ALSA output plug-in, go xmms!

I've read a good review about it at one time.. hmm, might as well give it a try.

I have beep installed on FC3 and I quite like it, but I was just suprised that the xmms project stuck with gtk1 instead of gtk2. GTK3 will probably be out in a year+ and some people may end up having to install 3 versions of gtk, so that they can use their favorite apps if gtk2 is not compatible with gtk3.
