Description Aleksey Nogin 2004-03-04 17:12:18 EST
If I run esdplay, the first time it starts esd and plays the sound
fine, but on subsequent invocations instead of connecting to an
existing esd, it tries starting a new esd, fails (because one is
already running) and does not play anything.

% killall esd
% esdplay /usr/share/system-config-soundcard/sound-sample.wav
% esdplay /usr/share/system-config-soundcard/sound-sample.wav
esd: Esound sound daemon already running or stale UNIX socket
This socket already exists indicating esd is already running.

P.S. esdplay -s localhost works OK.

P.P.S. Sorry, forgot: esound-0.2.33-1
Comment 2 Robert Vojta 2004-03-06 14:18:38 EST
I tried to reproduce this and I'm not successfull ...

- updated FC1 to 1.90 via yum
- same package

[robert@echelon robert]$ ps ax | grep esd
 2002 pts/6    S      0:00 grep esd
[robert@echelon robert]$ esdplay online.wav
[robert@echelon robert]$ esdplay online.wav
[robert@echelon robert]$ esdplay online.wav

Works fine in both situations - esd is [not] running before first
esdplay call ...

- I am using Raw Hide not 1.90
- I am using ALSA.
Comment 4 Robert Vojta 2004-03-07 02:43:47 EST

Sorry, my mistake ... I'm using Raw Hide too, same packages and it
works fine with alsa for me.
