On modern systems, the xmms MikMod plugin is broken, as the libmikmod.so version it depends on is too new. This affects many UNIX-style systems, including the xmms port on FreeBSD for at least version 10.x. This results in a segmentation fault when playing module/tracker files.

How to reproduce:

This can easily be reproduced by running xmms and by then trying to play a module/tracker file (.mod, .s3m, .it, .669, etc.). xmms will then terminate every time due to a segmentation fault.


I have attached an adapted version of a patch for Input/mikmod/drv_xmms.c originally written by Jakob Steltner for ArchLinux, which fixes the issue for multimedia/xmms.

I just unlocked and pulled xmms-1.2.11_26 from the packages collection, works beautifully!

Thanks for your work!
