XMMS setup

XMMS is not included in Ubuntu 8.04 by default. However, I like it so I installed it from the source, and it works :) If you also want FLAC, go here for Sartek's nice howto.

Get the required packages to build XMMS

sudo apt-get install autotools-dev automake1.9 libtool gettext libasound2-dev libaudiofile-dev \
libgl1-mesa-dev libglib1.2-dev libgtk1.2-dev libesd0-dev libice-dev libmikmod2-dev libogg-dev \
libsm-dev libvorbis-dev libxxf86vm-dev libxml-dev libssl-dev build-essential make

Get the XMMS sources

 mkdir ~/build
 cd ~/build
 wget http://xmms.org/files/1.2.x/xmms-1.2.11.tar.gz
 tar xvf xmms-1.2.11.tar.gz
 cd xmms-1.2.11/

Build and install

 ./configure --prefix=/usr
 sudo make install

After this you can remove the downloaded sources in the build directory
