I have no idea. You tell me.

See first two above.

xmms won't play because it can't use the above as an output plugin.

First error (two pop up at the same time):
Couldn't open audio
Please check that
Your soundcard is configured properly
You have the correct output plugin selected
No other program is blocking the soundcard
You cannot use the Disk Writer plugin
when you're running in realtime mode

1) (as root): port install xmms
2) (as normal user): xmms &
try to play an mp3
3) go to the main settings screen and try to configure the output device;
Realize that you can't change the setting.
This, as I said in the first post, is with the current (2.1.1) version of MacPorts.
Do I have any other information to provide? Not that I know of...unless
you want the specs for my Mac Mini (OS X Lion), 2.7 GHz dual-core i7, 8 GB
RAM, AMD Radeon HD 6630M 256 MB audio card, etc.
