unique XMMS2 problem


nobody else has had this problem yet, apparently.

XMMS2 installed normally with scons, only slightly funny line was:

sh: git-rev-parse: command not found

on my other box the command xmms2d got the player going, here it brings up:

INFO: Initialized logging system
** ERROR **: IPC failed to init!
aborting...
Aborted

Any theories? I'm stumped.

This occurs when a user attempts to restart xmms2d and another user has it already started. Login as root, issue "killall xmms2d", relogin as your user and issue "xmms2d &"

aha! that's handy. Problem now looks a little less perplexing...

xmms2-et: error while loading shared libraries: libxmmsclient.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

XMMS2 FAQ:
A: Add /usr/local/lib to either your LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable, or as a new line in /etc/ld.so.conf. If you add the line to ld.so.conf, make sure you run ldconfig before trying to use xmms2 again. If you have installed XMMS2 using a non-default PREFIX, the path you'll have to add will be $PREFIX/lib.

since I don't know where to look for LD_LIBRARY_PATH, I added /usr/local/lib, the location of my gaim executable

I ran ldconfig

same error message. seemed easier the first time.

Okay - to set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH you need to issue this as root:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/local/lib

If you do this, I would remove (or comment out) the extra line from /etc/ld.so.conf.


Should this still not help, try running "locate xmms2-et". This will hopefully give you a result. The path to whatever the result is should be appended to the variable (in the same manner given above) or added to /etc/ld.so.conf
