3 instances of artsd [solved]

Recommended Posts

My 2009.0 installation has three instances of artsd running after it boots. At least one of the three is preventing one or more other programs from having access to sound output.

 

$ /usr/sbin/lsof | grep snd
gconf-hel 3728 user  mem	   REG		8,3  1809984  230949 /usr/lib/libsndfile.so.1.0.18
artsd	 4541 user  mem	   CHR	 116,16			 3015 /dev/snd/pcmC0D0p
artsd	 4541 user	8r	  CHR	 116,33	  0t0	2769 /dev/snd/timer
artsd	 4541 user	9u	  CHR	 116,16	  0t0	3015 /dev/snd/pcmC0D0p
kmix	  4548 user   10u	  CHR	  116,0	  0t0	3062 /dev/snd/controlC0

In order to run certain programs which use sound I must first run the following command to remove the three instances of artsd.

 

killall -TERM artsd

Is the presence of artsd immediately after boot a bug in Mandriva 2009.0? How can I automatically remove artsd so that other programs can use the sound system without me having to fix things up manually after each boot?

You can try this, it worked in 2008.1

 

In KDE Control Center go to

Sound & Multimedia

Sound System

Then set (Auto-suspend if idle after) to one second

That fixed it. :thumbs: I have no KDE Control Center in the menu, maybe because I am using KDE 3.5 on 2009.0. The program's name is kcontrol and I was able to call it from command line.

There's a systemsettings-kde3 package in the repos that is the replacement for kcontrol in Mandriva 2009.0. It gives you the same control settings that are in kcontrol, or you can simply make a menu entry for kcontrol.
