Description of problem:
By default, the Esound-Plugin is chosen for output, but there's no Esound Daemon
running when you normally install the desktop-version and start your desktop.
So, as Newbie-User you won't know why there's no sound playing at all... So
either you should configure Esound to start with X or you should choose OSS as
default output plugin for XMMS...

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start XMMS
2.Try to play a music file
3.you will hear no sound

Actual Results:  No sound was hearable

Expected Results:  There should be sound:-)

esound-using apps start ESD by default if necessary, so this shouldn't
be a problem. Please try a later release, and reopen if it persists.

(and apologies for the abysmal response here.)
