Description Kim Pedersen 2004-05-26 10:23:37 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040510 Description of problem: After I update Fedora Core 2 with a yum check-update command and downloaded/installed some kdelibs the arts sound server does not work anymore. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): arts-1.2.2-2 How reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install Fedora Core 2 2. Use KDE 3. Execute yum check-update (while logged into KDE, as user (update as root via the su command)) 4. Restart computer 5. Log into KDE 6. Get the message saying that arts does not work anymore, as /dev/dsp can't be opened (No such device). The soud server will continue, using the null output device. Actual Results: Arts does not work anymore Expected Results: That arts would work (as prior to the update), and that I would have sound in KDE. Additional info:

I have this same problem, but i didnÂ´t do any update. My FC2 is final, is yours a test version? I found a very stupid fix for this problem on my box: Start KDE using a non-root account. Login in a user account reduced the chance of this window poping greatly, 9 out of 10 reboots worked fine with sound. And after loggin as user once, I can switch back to root and play with sound... Fedora...

do you have any hardware using sound device like USB webcam? could you please check if /dev/dsp* devices exist on your machine?
