thank you. it seems to be fixed in cvs already. however I still cannot play the internet streams. got: FATAL_ERROR: Can't receive value from the server. any suggestions? thanks

I've found a small bug: After moving item which is currently playing by program the next played item will be not that next to the current position of moved item, but next to moved item when moc started playing it. (It's hard to explain even in Polish (: )

Thanks, fixed.

I installed moc (music on console) from opensuse website last november and when 1 click install. There was some problem in listening to shoutcast radio, I get the message "format not supported". Then I got mad and ffmpeg installed but that doesn't make any difference. In Simply Mepis it works no problem. Anycase some how its got well and its all fine. Now I boot into runlevel 3 and listen to music without starting x.
