problem with aRts


i had the problem that i couldn't get my mp3's to work with xmms and i posted a question a few pages back and the answer came back that all i had to do was shut down aRts and i did this and i thought it worked, but it turns out that it kinda work, now no other program can make any other sounds ... i was wondering if anyone knows how to actually configure aRts so it can run more than one sound program? i'm wanting my 'you've got mail' sound off my e-mail client 'Evolution' as well as my mp3's off xmms and i'll be looking into mplayer soon as well. if anyone can help that'd be great.

i'm running fedora core 1 with KDE

also, dose anyone know the chmod command to change the permissions for an entire directory, subdirectory and all the files in there?

First thing is what sound card do you have and does it support hardware mixing? If not you'll need to look into software mixing.

http://alsa.opensrc.org/index.php?page=FAQ018

There is an excellent guide to permissions here.

No need to "crack the case" issue the following commands and post the output please.

/sbin/lspci -v

and

/sbin/lsmod

These commands should tell us what card you have and what drivers/modules you're using. We may then cross reference them with the capabilities of the driver and card. If hardware mixing isn't supported, (not many are as of yet) you'll need to look at the software option. The real drawback to this is a drain on system resources. Hope this helps.
good luck.

i think someone is leading you down the proverbial wild goose chase

xmms has an arts_output plugin

http://xmms.org/plugins.php?category=output

first check if your has it in the xmms options output section and choose it
if not see if there is a package for fedora core 1 to add it
might be called xmms-arts

when i look at
http://yarrow.freshrpms.net/
i see no xmms-arts so i guess there is not one ?
i bet it's included in the xmms install
if i remember right it was included but broken at first in fedora 1 then taken out then fixed later so if it won't work or is not there upgrade xmms and i think it needs arts-1.2.0-1.5 or newer
if all else fails
try compiling a new version of xmms yourself and adding the plugin after
as a kind of warning
arts kind of sucks as a sound server and has latency issues

chmod -R (for recursive)
