Solution to artsd woes
Hi all. I had the same problem that was reported by several people on this
list with the 2.2 artsd segfaulting.
A fix that worked on my system was to go into the control centre to the sound
server configuration, move to the Sound I/O tab and manually set the sound
My machine uses alsa. The I/O method was initially set to "autodetect" which
caused a crash. Specifically setting it to alsa also caused a crash, but
selecting OSS has proved to be a success. Presumably it's using the OSS
compatibility stuff built into alsa.
Anyway. Bottom line is try manually setting the I/O method to OSS - even if
you use alsa - and see if it works.

I've never felt anything that moves me as much as my piano. I'm
an emotional player. I don't really like people. I prefer my piano to people.
It's totally reliable and it's alive. I can hear what it's saying. For
the most part, piano are female to me. Sometimes they're dykes, and they're
always good fun.
