I upgraded to 5.1-RELEASE a few days ago and everything has been fine except for an annoying problem with XMMS. Seemingly random, XMMS will throw up a message "Couldn't open audio" as it transitions from one song to the next. I have tried deinstalling and then reinstalling XMMS. I have also tried closing all other X applications. I saw some posts online about changing the OSS driver to use dspW0.x instead of just dsp, but this didn't help either. I have tried `fstat | grep dsp', but nothing has control of that file when I'm having the problem. The problem goes away as randomly as it came. If I repeatedly hit the play button, eventually it will play the song. Sometimes I could press the play button only once, sometimes 15 times before it starts working. Sometimes I just wait a minute or two and it let's me play the next song. There is no discernable pattern to when it will fail - here i plays 10 songs before failing, now it plays 1 song before failing, now 3 songs before failing.
Has anyone else had this problem, or have any ideas on what to do? Thanks, Nathan -- gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys D8527E49
