This means there is no solution for aRts? My configuration worked flawless
with Fedora Core 6.
I have tested some further and I think it has something to do with kmail. When
several accounts have new mail kmail reports this event with a sound. For
some reason this will cause the aRts deadlock/hang. How can I investigate
this any further?
