Package: libarts1
Version: 1.3.2-1
Severity: important


Since upgrading to the latest version of aRts and restarting the sound server, the audio 
skips and there is static while doing nearly anything involving more than just typing or 
moving the mouse in X. This includes switching virtual desktops, minimizing or 
maximizing windows, and even switching tabs in Firefox.

Downgrading to the libarts1 3.1-1 available in testing resolves this problem completely 
(at the cost of breaking some -dev package dependencies, forcing me to remove them). Only 
aRts output is affected, which is unfortunate, as I use JuK to listen to all of my music 
and this essentially makes it unlistenable.

In case any of this information may help, I use a Turtle Beach Santa Cruz soundcard using 
the Cirrus Logic ALSA Module available in the kernel (SND_CS46XX). I also have an nVidia 
GeForce 2 MX which I use the NVIDIA drivers for (currently using version 6629).

Sorry if my description isn't helpful enough. I can try to elaborate if you need me to.

Thanks.

  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
  certain systems.

  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. 

  thanks,
