Description of problem:
esd.conf does not define a sound device for esd to use
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.look in /etc/esd.conf
3.spawn_options should have '-d /dev/dsp'
Actual Results: spawn_options does not have '-d /dev/dsp'
Tested. Are you sure this is needed? My esd outputs sound just fine with and
without "-d /dev/dsp".
Filing seperate bug report in that esd is not enabled by default as a new user.
Hmmm... after double-checking ESD does work for me once I enable the sound
server startup in the Sound control panel. It seems to me that I have to kill
off any ESD that is hanging around and wait for a new one to get spawned, but
that may just be me not properly trying things out.
