    The problem with that is xmms relies on gtk 1, not 2. gtk2 is not backwards compatible with gtk1, which is why you needed the 1 series of gtk and glib.

    Now I call that a good reply. Mandriva 2006 ships with gtk 2 ... What I've done is boot from Knoppix and copy the XMMs files onto a usb drive, and from there into /usr/bin/ etc. XMMs starts, but I still have to copy some plugins across. I want to avoid compiling from source!

    Beep wanted some rather exclusive library files, so I've gone for an easier solution. Whether this works in the long run, I'll have to see.
