This is the key, it cannot find a shared file, that xmms requires
If you are unsure of the program that supplies this file, a quick and 
easy way is to  go to


and under: 'Search the contents of packages'
nter that filename and change the Distribution to unstable or testing, 
this will give you the deb that supplies this missing file,
then just apt get it, follow the links on the site to manually download 
it and then run: sudo  dpkg -i filename.deb or use synaptic.

Sorry, not sure of the command from the consle to find this out.

That will not cure it.

just run:

apt-get install libmikmod2
