xmms will not open

so suddenly, when i open the shell and type xmms, it won't open anymore. i tried going to where the binary file is located and double-clicking as well, and that did nothing. it used to open, and i have no idea what is going on.

i just install the emu10k1 sound drivers, and i think after that it won't work, but i can't be certain either, because i was fooling around with a lot of stuff at the time.

thanks in advance.

may sound like a cop-out, but did you try reinstalling xmms?
