Description Martin Tarenskeen 2007-09-13 03:43:39 EDT
Description of problem:

When I run timidity without arguments it seems to default to Enlightened Sound
Demon, giiving an error message:
esd: No such file or directory
Couldn't open enlightened sound demon (`e')
I have to use -Os to enforce alsa output. Taking a look at the specfile in the
src.rpm I see it does try to configure timidity with alsa as default output.
(--with-default-output=alsa)  strange.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

My workaround: I removed "esd" from the "--enable-audio=" list in my SPECfile.
Maybe someone can up with something better?

How reproducible:
Always, at least on my system.

I found a btter fix. I disabled the TiMidity-2.13.0-detect.patch the specfile.
Apparently it doesn't work properly anyway.
This would fix bug #200688 and 288921.
