I'm having issues with artsd taking over my sound! Here's the timeline as follows:
Tyler gets Fedora 7 installed, sounds work great in Gnome and he can listen to and play lots of different files.
Tyler tries KDE, works great and sounds work fine.
Tyler goes back to Gnome, sounds only work when artsd is running, otherwise sounds refuse to play. Tried with arts installed and uninstalled. In Gnome if I use amarok sounds will play too.
