Distro Upgrade Killed Sound


Sound on my system has been a long and involved journey. I had everything working under ARTS, until I started gaming with wine and had to switch to OSS. Now I've started trying to edit MIDI files with Rosegarden, which will only co-operate with ARTS, so I was trying to switch back. I upgraded to the latest edition of Ubuntu, in the hopes of resetting ARTS back to a working state-- and now OSS doesn't work either.

Is there any way I can reset my entire sound setup to the install default? I'm just tired of messing around with it, and I'd like to be able to play music again.

Thank you

Rosegarden needs ALSA and JACK.

Ahh, yes, my mistake. All of the acronyms overwhelm me sometimes. Regardless, I have no ALSA, OSS, JACK, or ARTS.. I have no sound whatsoever. Each sound server returns errors.

Is there any way, other than a full re-install, to reset this?

Yeah ... aRts is odd in your system. I recommend you remove it. I'd start from beginning. Make sure your kernel has ALSA built as module, and OSS support thru ALSA. Get it working with alsaconf and go from there.
