I'm running 1.6.1 and I'm still experiencing this problem. I've been busy and
esd+xmms has been "working". Anyways, I talked to Mark Davies and he said
that my problem with noatun seems widespread (only plays ~1 second of
.mp3|.ogg) and my artsdsp problems are expected. So, not that those
shouldn't be fixed I'm wondering why my other packages don't detect the
presence of aRts and compile output plugins and such (mplayer, xmms). I have
not yet successfully played any non-wav format using aRts.
