I took following steps
kde start -> multimedia -> more programs -> arts control tool
The pointer is at "-12"
Click "View" -> "aRts status" to popup "artscontrol" window
It has been suspended already

Whether you menat these 3 files
There is nothing mentioned about "arts" or "arts" or "aRt" or "aRts" there.

There is no "ao" found in
I found following lines
# ao=oss # To specify default audio driver
(see -ao help for # list)
# ao = sdl:esd # use SDL audio driver by default
# use "ao = sdl:esd" to use SDL's ESD driver
Shall I make any change
