Dear experts,
I installed XMMS from http://xmms-embedded.sourceforge.net/feed/oz32/ on OZ335 / OPIE102 without problems - but MP3s seem to be unrecognized!
What might be missing??
Thank you,
Michael

I have the same problem ... I installed the same version, from the 3.2 feed, but I'm running 3.3.4.

Here's the output from mine ... hope it helps resovle this problem ... I'm going to try the nightly CVS build next:

Any ideas? Should I just upgrade to the nightly CVS?

Thanks for any help.

w00t ... I just resolved my issue ... hopefully this helps someone out:

I did a search to see if the libraries above were somewhere on my Z that xmms wasn't looking .... sure enough they were hiding in /usr/lib ... all of my software is supposed to get installed to /mnt/card/usr/lib

so I started symlinking like crazy



Here is the final directory listing of my /usr/lib and /mnt/card/usr/lib --

Now xmms plays music just fine and I don't get any library errors when I open it.

Good luck with your issue, Michael, I hope this helps you.

Oh, one more thing .... by default your SD/CF card will be formatted with FAT partitions.

According to this page: http://docs.zaurus.com/index.php?id=managi...ing_sd_cf_howto , you can't do symlinks on FAT paritions ... you'll need to format your memory card to either ext2 (which is what I formatted my SD card with), or MSDOS (for CF card, so you can flash with it).

XMMS loads without problems, all libs are found ... nevertheless some MP3s play normally, some other don't ...
Never stop searching!

Make sure you don't copy mp3s over your wifi link. I did that and a lot of my songs are corrupted too. You'll either have to do it over the USB cable by syncing them or SCP/FTP.

I've never had a problem copying mp3 files over wifi :shock:

in fact I quite often play them over wifi, the files being on a PC samba share.

bah! you don't need WIFI for that... I'm getting about 40% failure on my MP3s from CDR!

To top that off, all my original CDs were stolen. I feel like HAL in 2001.

What do you mean by "failure"? Is the whole file unreadable? Does the audio skip? Just curious. I have burned and mp3 encoded much of my collection and most of my problems (mainly skipping) were due to a jittery CDROM drive. Particularly old cds from the '80s were troublesome. And they did show some scary signs of wear: it looked like the shiny stuff inside was beginning to flake away at the edges. I have much better CD ripping results with my DVD-/+RW drive, when the original CD is salvagable.

I've never had problems copying things over wifi, other than transfer rates being slow as all hell. I used to have wierd file-corruption problems with USBDNET but i quit using USB with the Z because it's just too cumbersome.

As for problem with CDRs, are you burning on el-cheapo brand media at high speed? This can be a problem, esp. with old CD players/CDROM drives. Does your burning software cope well with long filenames? I have had problems on win XP and linux, even with Joliet, RR, and whatnot turned on, where "CLASSICAL MUSIC MP3 AUTOMATICALLY NAMED BY SOME GUI RIPPER PROGRAM WITH RIDICULOUSLY LONG NAME FULL OF EXOTIC PUNCTUATION & OTHER THINGS CONFUSING TO SHELLS .mp3" gets turned into "CLASS.ICA" or worse. Renaming the file to .mp3 fixes it but is a hassle.
