Re: Two sound problems (debian: addressed to exclusive sender for this address)
Currently I am using alsa. It works well for me in GNOME. However,
whether I use alsa or OSS makes no difference in KDE; MP3s don't work
In Sound System -> Hardware, these settings make no difference for
MP3s. I set it up to Advanced Linux Sound Architecture, and any KDE
app I try to use to play an MP3 still crashes. This happens regardless
of whether I toggle "Enable the sound system" ON or OFF. However, if I
do enable the sound system and set it to alsa, the "test sound" button
works fine. (The test MIDI button does not play anything.)
