xmms hates me!

So, if I run xmms through my gui(kde) I get nothing.

so I go to a command line

[voe@localhost voe]$ xmms

Segmentation fault

You've probably found a bug in XMMS, please visit and fill out a bug report.
I log into a konsole as root...

[voe@localhost voe]$ su -
[root@localhost root]# xmms
And my little player pops right up...I'm confused.

i'd just compile and install the latest stable version of xmms. no sense in trying to figure out what's wrong if reinstalling will fix it.

it's probably a bad permission error... maybe a lib xmms need doesn't has enought right. reinstalling should fix it I think.

cleaning /tmp

just remove your /tmp files

I had the same issue

I ran strace on xmms, the last bit of the output was

open("/home/sg/.gtkrc-1.2-gnome2", O_RDONLY) = 4
read(4, "# Autowritten by gnome-settings-"..., 4000) = 84
lstat64("/home/sg/.gtkrc.mine", 0xbff678ac) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
read(4, "", 4000)                       = 0
close(4)                                = 0
mkdir("/home/sg/.xmms", 0755)           = -1 EEXIST (File exists)
mkdir("/home/sg/.xmms/Skins", 0755)     = -1 EEXIST (File exists)
mkdir("/home/sg/.xmms/Plugins", 0755)   = -1 EEXIST (File exists)
socket(PF_FILE, SOCK_STREAM, 0)         = 4
socket(PF_FILE, SOCK_STREAM, 0)         = 5
getuid32()                              = 1000
geteuid32()                             = 1000
setuid32(1000)                          = 0
setreuid32(1000, 1000)                  = 0
connect(5, {sa_family=AF_FILE, path="/tmp/xmms_sg.0"}, 110) = 0
write(5, "\1\0 \0\0\0\0\0", 8)          = 8
read(5, ^X^X <unfinished ...>
so I ran

rm -r /tmp/*
ran xmms again and it worked fine.
