You should not install ESD; it is buggy as hell, and this is the reason
why it isn't enabled by default in GNOME.

If you want to share your ALSA devices with ESD, you can install
libesd-alsa0 but I don't recommend that. If you really need a sound
server, you should install PulseAudio which includes a compatibility
layer for ALSA applications. It is considered to make PulseAudio the
default sound system in GNOME, and we will probably follow upstream
moves on this matter.
