hi there,

this is not the solution for your problem. i just want to add that i had the same issue and found some interesting things.
in my case, a tweaked slackware with a custom kernel, i could not get sound with gaim. everytime that gaim tried to send some sound output, everything freezes.
but, if you use a sound server - arts or esd - then this issue is gone.
i was interested in this thing for the scientific view.
i don't care about sounds in gaim at all. but it is interesting to see that problems.
i just thought that i should share that with you..
regards

Try disabling sound in GAIM...do you really need a sound to tell you that you just sent a message ???

i like to hear when people get on and off and also when the first message is sent in case i am not at the computer, plus it is a problem and i just want to fix it, it make cause other problems elsewhere.
