" Are you sure the volume isn't down? "
Yes. I don't see the mute button anywhere - but I'm sure that it's not on because when I kill artsd - there is a sound playing but like I wrote - it repeats the same note, goes to the next one...
Maybe this could help - I started xmms from terminal.
When I selected Oss plugin:
** WARNING **: oss_open(): Failed to open audio device (/dev/dsp): Device or resource busy
When I selected artsd plugin:
mcop warning: user defined signal handler found for SIG_PIPE, overriding
In both ways it freezes - It won't move, push buttons - it freezes, it's not the volume problem.
I donwloaded Alsa player.
It's the same. With artsd running - no sounds. When I kill artsd - it starts playing but with the repeating thing...
This is what happens when I start Alsa from Terminal:
error opening /dev/dsp
/usr/local/lib/alsaplayer/output/liboss_out.so failed to load
/usr/local/lib/alsaplayer/output/libesound_out.so failed to load
NOTE: THIS IS THE NULL PLUGIN. YOU WILL NOT HEAR SOUND!!
null plugin active...no sound output
This was all when I kept artsd running.
When I kill it, and start xmms or alsa from Terminal - both of them don't
report anything.... but they keep repeating those notes...
About going to the newer version... Well it's a little complicated situation. If I wanted to download it - it wouldn't be possible - the Internet connection in Yugoslavia is VERY bad... I have a 56k modem and the fastast possible speed is 3.8 kb/s... I don't want to download it...
About buying it - well I don't know if there is any legal copy here...
