In March 18 2007, Pat decided to remove XMMS from Slackware official package and hoping for newer version of XMMS (which is XMMS2). Here's the changelog (taken from XMMS's website):
xap/xmms-1.2.10-i486-3.tgz: XMMS developers: THANK YOU for your years of dedication. We look forward to considering a new GTK+2 based design some time in the future. (Package removed).What do you know? After one year without any *BIG* progress on XMMS2, Pat decided to re-add XMMS again on -Current today. It's still broken on "doublesize" though. Here's the latest -Current changelog:
Thu Sep 11 16:02:24 CDT 2008Welcome back XMMS!!. I know many people will love this
xap/xmms-1.2.11-i486-1.tgz: Added xmms-1.2.11. This is an audio player that is similar to audacious, but uses about a third of the CPU power.
Please note that "doublesize" mode seems broken -- if it is enabled, XMMS will crash, and then will not start again until $HOME/.xmms is cleared out.
Any patch for this issue would be appreciated.
