On my system:
nutmeg:/home/kuiper# ls -l /usr/bin/artswrapper
-rwsr-xr-x 1 root root 4000 Mar 1 2002 /usr/bin/artswrapper
nutmeg:/home/kuiper# /usr/bin/artswrapper -h
>> running as realtime process now (priority 50)
usage: /usr/bin/artsd [ options ]
nutmeg:/home/kuiper# ps ax | grep artsd
542 ? S 0:02 /usr/bin/artsd -F 9 -S 4096 -s 60 -m artsmessage -l 3 -f
So, I have what you describe, I think. However, I just tried krecord again,
from the command line this time instead of the menu. Still the same.
I tried running krecord as root but it is no better. I notice that while
artswrapper is SUID root, artsd is not. Could this be the problem?
nutmeg:/home/kuiper# ls -l /usr/bin/artsd
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 117596 Mar 1 2002 /usr/bin/artsd
Besides the sound "skipping" I notice that the seconds (?) counter moves
faster than real-time during playback. It seems to move irregularly during
recording, sometimes taking 3-4 seconds to update one unit.
Could it be necessary that I need to fine-tune the -F and -S options? I tried
some of that with the Control Panel, without success.
There was also one diagnostic output from krecord:
Double QObject deletion detected.
Does it mean anything?
