xmms: sort by track number

Hi. i wonder if anyone can lend a hand with this.

I'd like to be able to sort a playlist in xmms by track number (i.e. from the ogg vorbis tag info). It seems as though this patch

does exactly that. Only problem is, I don't know what to do with it. Presumably I will need to get the xmms source and build it myself, and that will involve this .diff file somewhere in the process. But besides that I'm lost.

Thank you

Ok, I'm going to reply to my own post as I've managed to work this one out.

Copy the .diff file into the same directory as you have unpacked xmms-1.2.7.tar.gz (say ~/Packages). Then execute the command:

$ patch -p0 < patch-file-name.diff

You should get a message telling you that a number of files have been successfully patched. Then just ./configure, make, make install as usual. Now when you right-click on the playlist you get the added option of sort by Path + Track number. Fantastic!
