xmms flac playback slackware64 -current
After a fresh install of slackware64 -current, xmms will not play flac files. The flac plugin is not listed in the input plugins in the preferences of xmms. I ran into this in the past when xmms was removed from slackware. To get the xmms-flac plugin you would have to recompile flac after installing xmms. It appears that perhaps flac was compiled before xmms was in the -current version of slack64, therefore there is no flac plugin. I tried to recompile flac with the slackbuild from the source directory in slackware64 but it exited with errors before completing.
Can anyone else confirm the lack of flac playback with xmms in slackware64 -current?
