I am trying to use an audio editing/recording program named Audacity.
When I start the program, I an error saying that it failed to
initialise the audio i/o error. I changed the ownership of /dev/dsp to
the user and set permissions to 666. Now if I first run 'killall artsd'
Audacity starts with no errors. The problem that I have is that I did
not have to do these things with a previous install of my os. Any ideas
as to how I can just run the program without the work around?
