XMMS-Solaris Installation guide

Installation from source

  1. Download XMMS.
  2. Extract the archive using eg gzip -dc xmms-1.2.4.tar.gz | tar xvf -
  3. Compile using ./configure as normal (full instructions in the XMMS README file) (note: you may want to add "-O2" to CFLAGS; this halves CPU usage)
  4. Download the plugin (see download page).
  5. Extract the archive using eg gzip -dc xmms-solaris-0.6.4.tar.gz | tar xvf -
  6. Compile using ./configure. This will grab the path from xmms-config so you shouldn't need to pass any parameters unless it can't find xmms.
  7. run make;make install
  8. start xmms; it should find the plugin automatically.

Installation of binary packages

  1. Make sure you have all the system requirements before download as the binary packages do not enforce this as well as the source installation.
  2. Download the binaries
  3. Uncompress the downloaded files using eg gunzip *.gz (may not be necessary)
  4. Install the XMMS player code (eg, pkgadd -d xmms-sparc-1.2.4.pkg)
  5. Install the XMMS Solaris output plugin (eg, pkgadd -d xmmssol-sparc-0.6.4.pkg)
