Description of problem:
This is a completely new install of Redhat 9. I am using KDE. 
XMMS Output plug-in is set to aRTS driver 0.4 (libartsout.so). I start xmms
click Play and I get

arts_init error: loading the aRts backend "/usr/lib/libartscbackend.la" failed

I looked around the file system and there is no such file :-(.

I also tried running 

artsdsp realplay 

which used to work under 8.0 freezes up when the GUI comes up. I ran 

strace artsdsp realplay 

and I get

open("/usr/lib/libartscbackend.la", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or
close(10)                               = 0
open("/dev/dsp", O_WRONLY <unfinished ...>

It waits forever on the last statement.

it's fixed in KDE 3.1.1, which you can download from ftp.kde.org.
