KDE screwed my sound over


Or at least so it seems. I have a gentoo system that has been working well since I installed it, but when I installed KDE, my sound started going funny. I don't know how to describe it other than clicks, crinkling, or static; it's something like that. It doesn't really represent anything (like it's using the wrong sample rate or byte order or something), and it only happens when something tries to make sound.

% cat /proc/version

Losing too many ticks!
TSC cannot be used as a timesource. <4>Possible reasons for this are:
You're running with Speedstep,
You don't have DMA enabled for your hard disk (see hdparm),
Incorrect TSC synchronization on an SMP system (see dmesg).
Falling back to a sane timesource now.

The funny thing about whining about devfs is that on startup, it also whines about devfs not being compiled into the kernel, when in fact, it is. Any help with this?

I'm sorry, I don't know what more to tell you. Please ask if you need some more info; I really need to get sound working. Thank you so much in advance.

KDE installs a sound-server called arts which causes all sorts of probs with my audio apps.
Have you tried killing this before launching your sound app?
Eg
killall artsd & xmms.

Thank you very much for replying, but no, killing artsd does nothing. In fact, I can boot into runlevel 1 and it makes that same noise.

I don't know what to make of this : I can do something like "yes az > /dev/dsp" and I can get a faint tone out of my speaker. However, when anything else (near as I can tell) tries to make sound, it starts crackling again. Any ideas?
