Right; I tried catting /dev/sndstat awhile ago. Didn't see much beyong my cound card type. Also, there is no /dev/sequencer. So why Kmid would be hunting for it is one I'll have to look thru the code to learn about. It's probably trying to open the sequencer as a last resort. This is also why lsof fails. Hm, no src. Kmid is build from the kde3 source. Well, I'm building kplayer which seems to be a frontt end for mplayer. Maybe give me some clues why things-KDE keep breaking. thanks! gary > > Roland > -- > R.F.Smith http://www.xs4all.nl/~rsmith/ > [plain text _non-HTML_ PGP/GnuPG encrypted/signed email much appreciated] > pgp: 1A2B 477F 9970 BA3C 2914 B7CE 1277 EFB0 C321 A725 (KeyID: C321A725) -- Gary Kline [EMAIL PROTECTED] www.thought.org Public Service Unix http://jottings.thought.org http://transfinite.thought.org _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
