Slackware-current kdemultimedia upgrade?

I upgraded my slackware-current laptop to the latest last night (including the KDE 3.1.5 updates) and am experiencing what I also believe is believe is being discussed in this thread:

swaret -upgrade doesn't upgrade (or something similar)

My two noticable problems are I have no kmix binary and artsd pegs CPU usage upon login to KDE. In fact artsd will do the same with a manual start-up as well. Expanding and perusing the kdemultimedia-3.1.5 package doesn not appear to include kmix.

Anyone experienced this and have a solution?

Other notables on my laptop: upgraded to kernel 2.4.24 as well, alsa seems to be fine.

Thanks, Mike
