Description Gerald Teschl 2000-10-30 04:59:07 EST

Starting kaiman takes forever. Choosing a file to play (tested mp3 and au)
hitting the play button causes kaiman to freeze.
Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-10-30 05:14:40 EST
I can't reproduce this on a P3-750 with an SB 128 PCI card or on a P2-450 with a cheapo 16-bit ISA sb card.

Make sure artsd is running and your soundcard is set up correctly.
Comment 2 Gerald Teschl 2000-10-30 05:32:49 EST
arts is running and the soundcard is set up correctly (I get the kde startup
sound at login).

I have a Yamaha card (opl3sa2).

I tried to strace kaiman. First everything looks normal until it comes to the

read(3, "\2\3\0\0024\0\0\0", 8)         = 8
read(3, "O\0\0\0", 4)                   = 4
read(3, "\0\0\0\vDCOPServer\0\0\0\0\20anonymous-203"..., 52) = 52
write(3, "\2\2\2\0]\0\0\0O\0\0\0", 12)  = 12
write(3, "\0\0\0\20anonymous-20316\0\0\0\0\7kaiman\0\0"..., 64) = 64
write(3, "\0\0\0\r/home/gerald\0\0\0\0\1\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0", 29) = 29
read(3, "\2\5\0\2#\0\0\0", 8)           = 8
read(3, "O\0\0\0", 4)                   = 4
read(3, "\0\0\0\7kaiman\0\0\0\0\20anonymous-20316\0\0"..., 35) = 35
read(3, "\2\6\0\0023\0\0\0", 8)         = 8
read(3, "O\0\0\0", 4)                   = 4
read(3, "\0\0\0\7kaiman\0\0\0\0\20anonymous-20316\0\0"..., 51) = 51        
At the last "read(3," the output will suddenly stop. The harddrive will start
working and kaiman will eat up 20% of CPU (PII 300) and 15% of my memory (96MB).
After about a minute kaiman will put itself into the background and the main
pops up.

I can choose a file to play, but as soon as I hit play, the harddrive starts
heavily working
again and artsd uses 10% CPU for about another minute. Then kaiman will display
the file title and artsd will use 5% CPU. However, both kaiman and artsd are
and can only be stopped using "kill -9".
Comment 4 Gerald Teschl 2000-12-10 14:22:37 EST

kaiman now starts up normally, but hitting the play button still causes kaiman
artsd to crash as before.
(Using xmms + the artsd plugin works fine)
Comment 5 Gerald Teschl 2000-12-20 10:51:04 EST
works in kdenetwork-2.0.1-3
