artsd soundserver crash signal 11 sigsegv (alsa)
I'm running Debian Sid and recently did an upgrade, which shot me up to kde 3.5.2. When this happened, arts stopped working and I get one of those handly little kde crash handler windows popping up with a notification of a crash. knotify also seems to crash when using a new user (as I don't have system sounds enabled with my default user).
When I attempt to run artsd from a terminal, I get:
unix_connect: can't connect to server (unix:/tmp/ksocket-dave/suna-585d-44792ea8)
Sounds don't work if attempting to use arts. If using OSS, sound works. ESD doesn't work. Alsa appears to work in the terminal. Of course, I can only play one sound at a time with OSS, which is not good for some applications. I'm guessing it might have to do with alsa, because I get constant crash handler windows popping up (disrupting system use until I ALT-CTRL-BACKSPACE) when attempting to set the sound server to use ALSA instead of Autodetect. If attempting to set it up for OSS, I get no such errors.
I appreciate any assistance, as I have been working on fixing this for the past 8 hours. Thank you.
