Hi guys! This is my first post in this mailing list, so I'm a little
I've got a question: I use ALSA as sound system and all works. But if I
start ARTS system the following error appears:
Sound server informational message:
Error while initializing the sound driver:
device: default can't be opened for playback (No such file or directory)
The sound server will continue, using the null output device.
So, from kde sound system control center, I choose the tab "Hardware"
and select an audio device different from ALSA: it only works with OSS.
But when ARTS with OSS is running, some application such as mplayer or
sounds in web pages doesn't work anymore because the device /dev/dsp is
So the equation is:
(ARTS & OSS) xor ALSA ====> "all kde's sounds" xor "mplayer, sounds in
web pages, ecc..."
And now the big question: can I use ARTS with ALSA? I want something
ARTS & ALSA ======> all!
Some data will help you:
- debian testing
- kernel 2.6.10
- kde 3.4.2
- ALSA 1.0.9
- not a really heacker... ;-)
Thank you guys!
