Any Linux players that don't suck? (read: better than XMMS)

Well, it appears that I will not be using Winamp 5 for a week or so (because, hahahahaha ha... Windows sucks), so I want to know if anyone around here knows of any decent music players for Linux? I can't even get Winamp 2.00 to work in WINE correctly, so don't even suggest that.

WA5 apparently runs under Wine with very little fuss.

WA5 and pretty much anything higher than Winamp 2.00 crashed under WINE, and even WA2 crashed when trying to add files. WA3 runs slower than anything and almost crashes the whole damned computer.

I have only been able to run about 2 programs successfully in WINE.

I downloaded and compiled the latest wine cvs branch 2 days ago, and hacked my ~/.wine/config to tell it that it's running windows 2000, and that it's default root was /commons/fake_windows.

the installer ran fine.

the program ran fine.

the media library slightly misbehaved, but that's fine.

(beep is a gtk2 implementation of xmms. xmms-kjofol is a plugin for xmms to give it freeform skinning.)

And On that day, the Lords of the land said unto their Master Architect, "The temple you have made to the gods of Wasabi and Maki has brought us no great prosperity" and they sent out him into the lands.

As he traveled to a far off land, he found he wasn't traveling alone, but that he had gained companions, and when they found their new land, they started work on a new temple, one that would be OPEN to all who wanted to worship.

from The Book of Wasabi C 12 Vs 09 (pg 2003)
