slackware 10 and modest kde sound issue
I have read some posts on artsd keeping sound. I am trying out v10 and running KDE.
I tried in kde control center to autosupend sound after 5 seconds with no luck as XMMS reported sound issues.
So I thought, who needs kde sound stuff to play sounds on opening or closing applications etc so I clicked on disable, and kde sounds still continued.....so I did a reboot as I am a simple person and that resolved it.
now my xmms and noatun or kaboodle work fine. (there was nothing wrong with xmms and the kde sound tabs say that it will grab exclusive use of your sound card)
Just a suggestion for a quick fix.
