Description of problem:
Upon a single reboot, only kscd will work. xine, xmms and quake3 will
not work. arts is selected to be started upon boot in the
preferences, sound and multimedia, soundsystem section. Exiting kde
back in does nothing. 'killall artsd' does nothing. changing the
protections for /dev/dsp also does nothing. 'lsof /dev/dsp' yields
nothing. No obvious application is blocking access to the soundcard.
Also, clearing out everything in /tmp and rebooting doesn't solve
HOWEVER, after 3 reboots, and executing 'killall artsd', all of the
above sound applications work again.
This flakiness is reproduceable.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: no sound xmms, xine, quake3
Expected Results: sound in kscd, xmms, xine & quake3
as i know xmms and xine support arts for playing sound, you have to
enable arts support in xmms/xine, it will work again. I don't have
quake3 and don't know if it supports arts, if not you should use the
