Description Franz Trischberger 2013-02-18 09:17:37 UTC
When installing xnoise-9999 it won't start:

$ xnoise
ERROR:Player/xnoise-gst-player.c:1476:xnoise_gst_player_create_elements: assertion failed: (asink != null)
[1]    32159 abort      xnoise

When looking into the most recent totem-ebuild, it also contains those dependencies:


(I left out taglib, as xnoise seems to use an own solution - but I'm not entirely sure about that, yet)
And indeed xnoise starts and works (though there are some problems with certain mkv files - different issue ;))

I don't have any of those installed and xnoise works fine. xnoise already depends on gst-plugins-base which should provide a sink (alsa).
Anyway, I've added gst-plugins-meta now. I don't think this will guarantee a sink plugin, but with sane global USE flags, it should pull in something usable.
