Description of problem:
KDE Control Center - Sound & Multimedia - Sound System - Networked Sound:
Checking "Enable networked sound" and playing an audio file with Xine - There will be no sound from Xine until Xine exits, and then just a fraction of a second of audio.
Unchecking "Enable networked sound" enables Xine audio.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. see above
"Hardware - Select the audio device - autodetect" and "alsa" produce no sound on this machine. Currently using "Threaded OSS". KDE Midi also does not work, though aplaymidi works fine.
if you start xine on your local machine (not remote), the "Enable networked
sound" should be disable, otherwise it does not work. This behavior is normal!
There is a very important distinction to be made between "normal" behaviour and
"otherwise it does not work."
How embarassing! I can tell my friends "Well, see, if you want to hear sound
with the KDE desktop, _and_ you want to hear sound from your movies - well, that
does not work. It's Linux... sound does not work." That's so "RedHat".
