    XMMS woes


    Since my most recent install of Gentoo Linux, I've had problems with XMMS locking up either on startup or while in use and Gaim seg faulting on startup. I've determined that the problem lies in their OSD plugins, because if I turn them off, they work fine. However, I really like the OSD feature, especially for XMMS. This is a debugging session for XMMS, and the problem seems to occur in the kernel, but I'm not too sure. Could anyone please shed some light on the subject with ideas for what's causing the problem and/or solutions?

    Thanks a lot!

    I managed to fix the problem by downgrading my copy of xosd.
