Bug Description

Milkyplay doesn't play any file which are playable in milkytracker. At least I can't hear anything. Sound works in other programs just fine. For example:

$ milkyplayer milky.xm
- MilkyPlay -

Playing milky.xm (press ctrl+c to quit) ...
Title: milk in veins
SDL: Using audio driver: pulse
SDL: Buffer size = 2048 samples (requested 4096)

It seems to be playing, right? Can't hear anything. Running Lubuntu 12.04 on Asus Eee 1005HA.

Please attach an example file. This is goog style and whithout the workload to any developer is to high.

And please give a step by step description like pushing this button, choosing that, waiting for, and so on. Give a good algorithmic description, that is complete and can guide a beginner in milkytracker.

After that set the status of this report back to new.

Thank you

1. Download the attachment (example song from official milkytracker website)
2. In lxterminal window type "milkyplay milky.xm" in the directory you downloaded the file
3. milkyplay doesn't produce any sound, but has some terminal textual output.

I can confirm.

No sound with milkyplay on systems that have sound with other players.

The console output is:

~/Downloads$ milkyplay milky.xm
- MilkyPlay -

Have you heard anything from upstream? I have exactly the same problem...

No reaction from upstream.

Some further information: if you press 'p' twice(!) then sometimes the songs starts to play but mostly you get a segfault. The milkyplayer.cpp code is actually from debian, is the error known there?

Compiling without stripping gives me the following backtrace. As said in my last comment I pressed 'p' twice.
