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 
I/O method.

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.

Ben. :)

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.
