Sound only works in XMMS and Mplayer


Sound works perfectly in XMMS and Mplayer, but it doesn't work properly in any other program.
I'm in Mandrake 9.0 and using alsa.

I had the same problem. It is most likely the arts sound server that is causing the problem. For GUI fix, go into start/configuration/kde/sound/sound server and turn off the start aRts soundserver on KDE set-up and you should be all set.

After rch mentioned arts, I thought of course that must be it so I went in to turn it off and found that I already had it disabled. I turned it on to see if that would make it work and xmms and mplayer do not work now.

Programs such noatun, and some random games I have downloaded either make terrible screeching sounds or have sound that is intermixed with the screeching sounds. I think the games use sdl for sound.

mplayer -ao help will give you the possible audio output plugins that is in working condition in your system
see if it includes sdl
for a more easier way
do whereis libSDL
