File a bug tongue

Temporary I threw this kinda dirty PKGBUILD together, which works for me

pkgname=bmpx
pkgver=0.14.2
pkgrel=1
pkgdesc="BMPx is the follow-up of the BMP project with a codebase rewritten from scratch"
url="http://beep-media-player.org/"
license="GPL"

    'glib2>=2.10' 
    )
source=(http://switch.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/beepmp/$pkgname-$pkgver.tar.gz)
md5sums=()

build() {
  cd $startdir/src/$pkgname-$pkgver
  ./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-amazon --enable-hal
  make || return 1
  make DESTDIR=$startdir/pkg install
}

[edit] running it for about 10 minutes now, it is slowly eating memory, now about 43 megs and rising, with no gui running.
I would not advice to use bmpx for everyday use, but feel free to do so.

[edit2]stupid applications doesn't let me kill the process  :twisted:

Re: Problem with beep-media-player-2

If you should use it or not is a matter of personal preferences. All I can say is that I removed it already wink...
...but on the other hand, it does not harm you giving it a testdrive.

About the bugs, yes there are some, but they won't go away when nobody is using it & submitting bug report to the bmpx devs.

Re: Problem with beep-media-player-2

Bear in mind that bmpx is not the same as beep-media-player-2 - more like the cutting-edge next-gen version of it. Re your first question, is dbus running?

bmpx from testing should be started with beep-media-player-2, so I thought that's what he meant.

I tried it too, but it was not working here, also some sort of dbus error (yes, dbus was running roll )

I think it is possible to build bmpx without dbus, you should check their homepage about that.

so compile the package with the above PKGBUILD and it runs wink

Are all of you guys running a 'testing' system? Maybe the package is build on a current/extra system? somebody in a postition to verify?

Re: Problem with beep-media-player-2

bmpx is in testing now - since yesterday, actually. Obviously, it's compiled against the testing versions of dbus, neon, gstreamer, etc. So that would be the one to try.

OK - sorry. I'm obviously suffering from time-lag. :oops:

Having said that, I'm running it now with no problems - I'll leave it going for a while and see what happens.

Re: Problem with beep-media-player-2

Right, bmpx has been running here since my last post, playing mp3s from a NFS share, and it's been solid - CPU 12-15%, memory 6-7%.

I think I'll keep it around for a while. smile

Having a dbus daemon running is not the same thing as having a dbus session.  Either you start your X server in a dbus session or in a terminal try:

dbus-launch beep-media-player-2

Re: Problem with beep-media-player-2

Why would that be necessary for some users, but not others? Assuming we're all running the same versions of everything from testing.

so that's why my own version did run, as I did not add the --enable-dbus switch to configure.

Is it possible to add an .install file, which says that a dbus-session needs to run?
thanks

Actually, dbus is enabled by default. If you don't want it, you need --disable-dbus, so your PKGBUILD would have included it. The essential difference between your version and the testing version is that you have --enable-hal - kpiche has not put that in the testing PKGBUILD, and it is disabled by default.

which makes there website look stupid   tongue

Build BMPx with D-BUS support
First and foremost, you must build BMPx with D-BUS support. You can accomplish that by adding the switch --enable-dbus to configure. BMPx currently requires D-BUS version 0.35.2 or greater (0.60 is current and will work with 0.13 or SVN HEAD).

I'll try if I can get the testing version working on my machine.

ps. where did you found the PKGBUILD, I cannot seem to find it?

[edit]
New error  big_smile

Re: Problem with beep-media-player-2

I got it big_smile

[ronald@pressh_box pacman]$ /usr/libexec/beep-media-player-2-bin
/usr/libexec/beep-media-player-2-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libn eon.so.26: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
[root@pressh_box ronald]# ln -s /usr/lib/libneon.so.25 /usr/lib/libneon.so.26
[ronald@pressh_box pacman]$ /usr/libexec/beep-media-player-2-bin

So neon provides libneon.so.25 instead of libneon.so.26 (both testing/current) !

[edit] it kinda works stable atm, but not able to play radio streams

Re: Problem with beep-media-player-2

The website's up to date here. Like many open-source projects, I suspect the major effort goes into the actual development. with websites, documentation, etc, playing catch-up.

I have neon 0.26.0 installed here, which is why I didn't get that error. Have you posted it on Flyspray?

It's because some desktop environments start a dbus session for you.  If you check the the processes under GNOME you can see that gnome-session is run under a DBUS session:

$ ps auwx|grep dbus-launch
kpiche    2255  0.0  0.1   3056   788 ?        Ss   09:33   0:00 /usr/bin/ssh-agent -- /usr/bin/dbus-launch /opt/gnome/bin/gnome-ses

If your DE doesn't do this you need to add dbus-launch to your .xinitrc or something.  There's a note about this on the bmpx site.

Sorry about the neon library version.  Neon wasn't in testing when I started building bmpx so I had 0.26 installed at the time.  I'll be putting update tonight.
