Re: xmms conflics with esd?
Running woody and gnome here with esd. How can xmms, gnome, xine .. be
configured to use sound from the kernel instead of esd? There seems to
be three types of sound support: arts/esd/kernel is there a good
overview of each of these and how to get gnome to use them? pros/cons?

Save yourself the overhead and remove esd? It's not necissary for
sound, the kernel does just fine with that. (Unless your card is
ancient, like an ISA sb16, in which esound is handy to have since it'll
allow more than one sound to play at once, but only with esound-aware
programs. For everything else, you're kind of limiting yourself).
