Ubuntu Sound problem
When I am logging in to Ubuntu 7.10, I am getting the following message repeatedly :
"Sound server fatal error:
Error while initializing the sound driver:
device: default can't be opened for playback (Operation not permitted)"
This is not there when I first installed it and started using. But I feel may be when I have installed few applications like Amarok, MPlayer, Noatun), the problem started then.
I have also noted that when the system starts the process monitor shows a lot of artsd in the list. Then one after another error messages showing the above message comes up in the screen.
It seems there is a conflict between artsd and Alsa. I am getting the login sound but nothing after that.
Please help to solve this.
