Thanks for the timely reply. I am using the CVS of last Saturday I 
believe. Have you committed
changes thereafter ?

ARTS itself works well; e..g. with XMMS or other ARTS based apps.

I'll co the latest CVS and send you more info thereafter.


I suppose one should "enable" ARTS and "disable" both OSS and ALSA in 
Is that correct ?
