Description Matthew Leingang 2003-10-13 14:17:27 UTC

Description of problem:
I was trying to play kolf, a game in the kdegames package, but was not getting
any sound.  Moreover, the game was hanging for several seconds each time the
ball struck a wall.

The error messages were all "cannot connect to server:
unix:/tmp/mcop-[username]/[host]-[id]..."  Googling this error message led me to
believe it was an arts problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. # rpm -e arts-devel; killall artsd
2. $ /usr/bin/kolf
3. start a game and putt the ball around

Actual Results:  mcop warning: user defined signal handler found for SIG_PIPE,
mcop warning: user defined signal handler found for SIG_PIPE, overriding
ASSERT: "id < (int)d->m_list.count()" in kaction.cpp (1539)
unix_connect: can't connect to server
unix_connect: can't connect to server

Expected Results:  Sound!

Additional info:

Turns out all I had to do was install the arts-devel package from the same
RedHat 9 distro.  I didn't install this package at the outset because I hadn't
thought I would need it.  Once I did, kolf makes sounds happily and the lags are

It seems to me that arts-devel should be a prerequisite for the kdegames package
if it's needed to make at least one of the games function properly.  Simply
making that prereq would make this bug go away.

it's a bug in arts rpm, which is already fixed in KDE 3.1.4 or in rawhide. You
could download KDE 3.1.4 for RHL 9 from ftp.kde.org. thanks for your report
