I just downloaded, compiled and started using 0.4.4.99.5 on Debian/unstable.
It compiled fine after hitting it about the head a bit: configure was
looking for gstreamer-libs-0.6 but the Debian package installs the
pkgconf file "gstreamer-0.6.pc". I kluged a fix by symlinking
"gstreamer-libs-0.6.pc" to "gstreamer-0.6.pc" in /usr/lib/pkgconfig. I
guess the debian package needs to be fixed? I compiled against the usual
stuff (including ogg and vorbis) as well as XOSD, but not lirc.
It seems to be playing oggs and radio fine - although I will only be
using it to listen to oggs for the most part.
The only complaints are that it seems to be hogging a *lot* of CPU -
even when not playing, and it seems to be leaking memory on a per-track
basis. At the start of the track, it is using 16M/8M RSS/shared, after
playing a three and a half minute track it gets up to around 22M/14M.
When a track finishes and the next starts, memory usgae drops back down
I'll be hammering it for you. I typically use RB for 4+ hours per day,
and because 0.4 and 0.4.1 rarely crashed on me, it typically has had an
uptime of weeks. So I'll let you know if I run into any further
problems. Let me know if you want more details about the stuff above.
