    Odd xmms problem


    New install of Slackware 10.

    xmms briefly shows the artist and track details then flicks to just displaying the first letter from each field. So Streophonics - Just enough education etc shows as S - J

    Have removed and resintalled but no change.

    I'm curious about this, as I use XMMS a lot, but I've never seen that error. Could it be something to do with running it in WindowMaker?

    Might be worth trying it in a different desktop environment.

    It was doing it in WM, XFCE, Fluxbox.

    Found some mp3/oggs that didn't do that though. All tracks have been on a seperate partition and have been there for a long time. Never seen it in all the other distros/installations I've tried.

    Problem over though as I've just installed VectorLinux. Got peed off with a Slack error about UTF-8
