aRTs and gnome, redhat 9
running redhat 9 and gnome ...
my sound card is working, after having done redhat-config-soundcard, and i am using the via82cxxx_audio module. unfortunately, esd and this module don't get along... (see redhat bugzilla bug 76603)
right now, the only way i can get sound is to use the OSS output driver in xmms.
what i would like to do (if it is possible) is to use aRTs until esound or the sound driver get fixed. really, i only want xmms and gaim to have sound since both of those apps have an option to use aRTs. here's what i've done so far:
told gnome to not start the sound-server on startup
killed all instances of esd
run 'artsd &'
set xmms and gaim to use aRTs as sound output
only thing is, i only get silence. is what i want to do impossible, or am i going about it the wrong way?
thanks in advance
