XMMS Crashes program start, Linux Sarge System


I am a newcomer to using Debian and have been asking for help on this forum with great success.

I recently got Debian Sarge system up and running (2.6 Kernel, Athleon 2000 XP, Soyo Dragon +, Audigy, Geforce 3 ti200) all is appearing to work correctly, however after having some problems installing the Nvidia driver and finally getting it to work I now have a problem with XMMS. The program starts and I see it in the system tray for a split second then it's gone. When ran from the command line I get the following error.

xp2000:~# xmms
libmikmod.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Inconsistency detected by ld.so: ../sysdeps/generic/dl-tls.c: 72: _dl_next_tls_modid: Assertion `result <= _rtld_local._dl_tls_max_dtv_idx' failed!
xp2000:~

I had to do the following to get the nvidia module to compile.
apt-get install gcc3.3
Attempts to compile the module were failing due to the lack of that compiler

If installing that compiler caused the problem, I've no idea where to look to begin to fix the problem. I checked the xmms.conf file and all appears to be normal there. I'm not positive which log file I should view when problems like this arise

Any help is appriciated, or if you could point me in the right direction I'd be very grateful.

Thanks to all on the forum that have been helping me along the way.

have you tried using 'ldconfig' to update the list of shared objects? if this doesn't helpd try 'ldd xmms' to see what's wrong.

hope this helps.

tokoeye - Thanks for the help.

I tried ldconfig and nothing seemed to happen. Trying ldd xmms gives me the following error

xp2000:~# ldd xmms
ldd: ./xmms: No such file or directory
xp2000:~# ldconfig


Any additional ideas you might have is appriciated.

Thanks .

sorry about that. you have to use 'ldd /usr/bin/xmms' (or wherever your xmms bin is; try 'locate xmms|grep bin')

hi rjcmi,

ld.so refers to the Shared Objects between applications in Linux (that's why they're called so). "Inconsistency detected by ld.so" means that there is a problem with these shared objects. the ldconfig command is used to update the so's.
have you tried doing an 'apt-get upgrade' to get all apps up to the same level? or an 'apt-get distr-upgrade' to get everything up to the last level?

I had this EXACT same problem this morning. I just
Code:
apt-get remove xmms
and it'll complain about removing kde, etc. If you're using gnome, don't worry about it, you can always add kde back later with
Code:
apt-get install libqt3-dev
and that'll give you more kde goodness. Anway, after removing xmms, then do
Code:
apt-get install xmms libmikmod2
and you'll be all set! So easy, isn't it?
