hmm, weird.

up2date of course, doesnt do anything with sound, /dev/dsp, /dev/esd,
esd, or otherwise, so I'm a little confused as to what this error
message indicates. 

Do you have "sounds for system events" enabled for gnome stuff?
Is esd running for that user?

Could you provide a copy of the esd error your getting? I'm not having
much luck attempting to duplicate this.
Comment 5 Lamar Owen 2001-09-10 12:05:01 EDT
Possibly related:
up2date won't run under KDE as normal user.  KDE brings up the dialog 
requesting the root password, and a dialog displays mentioning the beta site's 
RHCN stuff.  Clicking OK on the dialog clears the dialog, and up2date doesn't 
open another window, and according to ps ax is still running.  After a while, the 
error message (if run from a konsole):
Error communicating with server.  The message was:
Connection aborted by the user
Error communicating with server.  The message was:
Connection timed out
is spit out and up2date terminates without ever providing a dialog of any kind.
Comment 6 Preston Brown 2001-09-10 14:32:17 EDT
up2date runs under KDE for me just fine, BTW.  I don't think there is a bug 
here.  Perhaps a beta RHN server misconfiguration, but no bug.
Comment 7 Adrian Likins 2002-03-26 18:15:33 EST
I think any of the issues related to this should be cleard
up by now in current versions.

If thats not the case, please reopen this bug.
