cmus streams

I've been using cmus for some days now, works nice (except of the known popping issue on the 3.5mm jack output), but I failed to add streams using the :add command.

I think it can be a version-related problem, for example:


on 2.4.2 with ubuntu gets the stream into the list, on 2.5.0 with RPI has absolutely no effect

Any clue anyone?

please post what version of arch you are running and when you last updated.

I suppose to see what is going wrong, you could try starting this from the command line using strace and examine the output to see where it dies. That is available in the repository.

uname -a:
Linux lego 3.6.11-2-ARCH+ #1 PREEMPT Mon Dec 31 23:00:25 UTC 2012 armv6l GNU/Linux
Last update I did yesterday.

At github I was advised to install libmad, which SOLVED the problem. :D I did not have any idea that it was needed and pacman did not install libmad as default. Maybe this was an obvious solution but not for me. Maybe it will help somebody else.

Lets see which repo cmus in
tells me it's community

So I go here
If it's in there it could possibly be an arm only problem, but it's not there

So now on main arch site (upstream)
Ah, libmad (optional)- for mp3 input plugin support
There would probably been a message when installing cmus
