All, Slavek, In 3.5.13-sru, the artsd process is continually taking between 8 and 11 percent of the CPU. That is high compared to my other installs of 14.0. Is anybody else seeing this? The sound is working though, so I'm pleased there. (that has always been hit or miss) What to check to see why artsd is so greedy? -- David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
