Question Couple KDE Application Questions

Hey all!

Be kind this is my first post

I am on day 3 of my first install of RHL 7.2 or any *nix platform.

I tried running XMMS in KDE and it launches in the task bar for about 30 seconds with the hour glass and then disappears. Same thing with KDE Media Player. The MPEG viewer works fine.

I noticed that once it disappears from the task bar, the process is still running.

The same thing happens with Jezzball and Kbattleship...but Poker works.

I really think that it has something to do with aRtsd because when I go to the KDE Control panel >> Sound >> then to tab with the test sound button. when I press the button, it goes dark grey and sits...and that process hangs as well...

Thanks in advance for the help!!!

Check the permissions on your sound devices, /dev/dsp*, /dev/mixer* and /dev/sequencer*.
