Once you have it set up again, http://freebsd.kde.org/faq.shtml (question 11) will sort out any "aRts is hogging the soundcard" issues you had. What kind of tinkering have you tried? Can you look at the output of "ps axwww |grep artsd" and show me the entire command line? Mine looks something like tihs, these are fairly safe settings: artsd -F 10 -S 4096 -s 60 -m artsmessage -l 3 -f If you have no arts running, and you run this commandline in a terminal what happens? CC'ing the kde list, likely more input there. -- Lauri Watts KDE Documentation: http://i18n.kde.org/doc/ KDE on FreeBSD: http://freebsd.kde.org/
