With F8, I have 2 frequent problems sometimes I didn't solve yet. Maybe someone is able to help me.
Both problems are 'sound' related.
1) When I enter in my kde session, often "play" command (maybe the one used to play startup sound) loops, and push my cpu to 100%. I usually solve by opening ksysguard (or via terminal) and killing the 'play' process.
2) With Kde, when I browse a folder with konqueror (or kfmclient) which contains some video files (divx/xvid avi, mpeg, etc.) the file manager hangs. I realized it is a problem inherent the sound, because if I kill my 'artsd' process, the file manager unblocks and return working correctly.
I preface, that with F7 and same system/Apps configuration I didn't have the problem I mentioned above, so I suspect it may be a problem between pulseaudio and alsa... but I do not have other ideas.
Tnx in advance.
