It's interesting that Amarok (using xine sound engine)
plays just fine when manually set to go through ALSA.
Modules all seem to be loaded. ALSA isn't listed as a
manually selectable option under the KDE sound system
control panel. Can't get mplayer & Amarok to play
simultaneously (should they be able to do that without
artsd running?)

I definitely used the recipe or the package. I'm
pretty sure it was the package. Anyone know if the
signatures on the latest KDE packages are all valid?

Thanks for all the input everyone!
