xmms2 infoto automatically write signature files for my mails. However, I got annoyed by one quite painful thing: on my computer, it can take up to
40%of the processor to play a MP3 file (AMD64 x2 4200+ @2.2GHz)! That is mad. One of the consequences was that the music was jaggy whenever
aptitudewas upgrading packages... Annoying.
So, I've switched to mpd. It provides a decent command-line client, with possibly a bit less features than
xmms2, but it takes only a few percent of the processor's usage... Thanks !
