kde 3.3.1 (sarge), sound problems: can't use microphone, krec seems to ignore kde sound settings, ...
I've done a fresh sarge install now, with kde 3.3.1 (kernel 2.4.27)
This time I tough that I maybe could have sound properly configured, so
that I could use "skype" to talk to other... I tought of testing the
sound input (microphone) using krec... No good..
I can press "record", talk as much as I want, no sound will be
replayed... Well, I tought of using gnome sound recorder... It only
works correctly (I can record and reproduce sound) if I don't have a
sound daemon running (I tried arts and esd).
No matter what I tried, I couldn't get krec to work. If not using arts
it will default to null device. If arts is redirected to esd (so both
are running) krec will refuse to work also..
Has anyone got success with krec?
Well, basically I'm complaining that I think the sound support is still
working ... badly... in kde 3.3.1... I've got used to turn off arts
already in the earliest versions of kde, as I never had proper sound
with it, and I was hoping thing got better with new releases..
In the meanwhile, I read somewhere that arts was going to be
descontinued, so does anyone knows if there is a replacement now or
planned for the future?
Could my sound problems be somewhat better if I try a 2.6 kernel
(because of alsa) ?
