Rerunning alsaconf solved my problem. You can look at:


(which also says that alsaconf is now useless).

So, now "-d oss" is working very well. "-d esd" is working, but I
may need to launch the command twice if it fails the first time (the
auto_spawn option seems to be buggy: the command fails before the
ESD daemon could be spawn). ALSA (without OSS emulation) still
doesn't work, and I don't know why.
