Finally got around to port the current XMMS site to some more sane HTML standards. The old ways of messing about with silly tricks and make the browsers jump through hoops just to make some small borders around a few blocks of text is OVER for me. Never again. I'm going to refuse such assignments on my daytime work, if it can't be done with proper HTML I won't do it, even if it means I'll have to quit. Oh well, I'll probably never finish it anyway. Just one more of those rewrites that I never get the energy to actually post on the page.

Work is moving along quite slowly while the list of things to do just grows and grows. Anyone interested in taking care of updating the pluginlisting on xmms.org?

Manage the skin submissions?

Answer supportmails?

Redhat 8.0 XMMS

  • MP3
    • Removed support for MP3's
    • Fails to install the "Information" plugin, leaving most users clueless.
  • ARTS
    • Segfaults if it's not installed
  • Skin
    • Patches the source to use the "Bluecurve" skin.
    • Use default skin? mkdir ~/.xmms/Skins/XMMSDEFAULT
  • Users
    • Two weeks later I've had atleast 30 people not being competent enough to read www.xmms.org. They do however visit www.xmms.org to get my email adress.

...and thus making me recieve atleast two mails a day about bugs in XMMS.

I love Redhat
