sound and kde/gnome
THe following pertains to debian testing.
I have an intel i810 chip in my laptop. If I run xinit, and do a cat
/proc/modules, it looks like i810_audio is unused, and a subsequent run of
xmms produces beautiful sounding mp3s.
If I do a /etc/init.d/kdm start and run a kde session, it looks like the
driver is used once, and a subsequent run of xmms produces unintelligible
garble. There is nothing obvious running which is using the driver (arts)
and the sound is disabled in kde. Similar situation for gnome, but I am
less sure of how the sound daemon behaves in gnome.
This only started happening after an upgrade to testing.
THanks for any pointers. I'd be happy to provide more info.
