in its latest upload, aRts got removed the realtime capabilities in
the default installation. this can result in a worse performance, but
it was done to fix some rather nasty hangs that aRts was causing on
please see /usr/share/doc/libarts1/README.Debian for details. in
short, if you were not experiencing those hang, that file will explain
you how to restore realtime capabilities to arts.
also, have you akode installed? if you don't, please install it before
restoring realtime cap. to arts and give us some feedback as if it
improves your situation at all.
