Gnome vs. KDE with ALSA
This is an opinion question, I am wondering who on this list uses Gnome
and who uses KDE, I like the simplistic look of gnome, which is why I
switched to gnome, but however one thing that is really important to me
Googling it, I have found very little literature on that subject, and
the only output I have been able to produce sound with is esd. ALSA and
OSS sinks both give me 'unable to construct test pipe' and artsd runs
the test with no audio, sound in mol is broken now, with a report of
"OSS sound device unavailable (will be used anyway)
OSS sound driver"
So I do not know whether MOL cannot use OSS, and/or whether esd just
takes total control of /dev/dsp, which I have read a little bit about.
This is making me want to switch back to KDE, but I must ask, is ALSA
possible in gnome?
