KDE 4.2 : Sound Problems WIth knotify4
Debian testing branch ((squeeze)) just went to KDE4.2
I decided to allow the upgrade and I had some sound problems.
When KDE4.2 was *not* running, sound was running great on a virtual terminal and in fluxbox.
When KDE4.2 was running... no sound... anywhere.
Hence, the problem was not with the soundcard or the kernel config, but with KDE4.2
It seems that knotify4 was not letting anything else use the sound card.
Well, if I kill knotify4 and restart it, then I have sound and everything is happy and joyful with sound. So, I added a quick and dirty kludge to ~/.kde/Autostart to kill and restart knotify4. Well, this is a crappy way of fixing the problem.
Does anyone have any further insight into the knotify4 problem, and a more elegant way to resolve it?
