artsd soundserver crash signal 11 sigsegv (alsa)


Howday,

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)

Segmentation fault

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.

There are similar reports regarding kanotix (Debian sid variant) and ubuntu dapper.
It is aparently a problem with libasound2, which was upgraded in the last few days.
If you haven't cleared the apt cache you can do this ti fix it -
Code:
 cd /var/cache/apt/archives/
 dpkg -i libasound2_1.0.11-4_i386.deb
Otherwise wait til version 1.0.11-6 to see if it's fixed.

Actually, I did clear the apt cache, hoping that it would help if I were to downgrade to etch. Let's just say that when I did that I wasted a lot of time. I'm going to check the debian website to see if they have that particular package there. Be Right back.

I found 1.0.11-3, so I am going to see if that works. Just a sec.

Okay. It's set up. Now to reconfigure alsa again and get arts up and running.

Incase of that horrible pop-up blocking my ability to do anything, I will be posting this now and post a reply to my reply after restarting X.

Glad it worked for you but I can't take the credit. It's worth while checking the kanotix forum for any problems relating to sid after upgrades. They almost always have a fix pretty quick.
