along with emu10k1 divers so digital output is availible (The sf.net rpm, works
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Installed Emu-config, selected digital out
2.Used xmms to play mp3, failure

Expected Results: Sound should be played
Switching to OSS Output solved problem.
We're not really going to switch the default output plugin at this point, and
certainly not based on the sound card in use.
As for silence with the esd plugin, that's a separate esound vs. gnome-session
bug, that's being worked on.
