[K12OSN] LTSP Audio

No, this is sound in general - have not tried to tackle Flash until  
the system sound is stable. I can sometimes restart the sound (even  
though the artsd daemon is already running) by going to (in KDE)  
Control Center > Sound & Multimedia > Sound System then disabling/ 
applying/re-enabling the Sound System then power-cycling the thin  
client. Then I log in, get the KDE intro music and all other system  
sounds. I even get audio from the Windows server when I log into it  
via rdesktop. Log into a different thin client, works fine. Log out,  
log back in, nothing. No system sounds, no Windows sound, and nothing  
changed to the Sound Server. I'm using KDE because the kiosk tool  
allows for good profile and security management (Sabayon on Gnome  
continuously crashed on me), however if Gnome has better sound  
support I will change them over to that and find another profile  
management tool. Thanks for everyone's help.
