Well, I have a different problem. Whenever I use the OSS driver, all
goes well. Xmms, "play", and my CD-player all work perfectly. But when
I try to use esd... Well, it plays 1 second and then repeats that
second again and again, until I kill esd.

I think that's not my problem, since I was using a SoundBlaster one
week ago, and esd was working with it...
Anyway, I decided to buy a SoundBlaster. Is anyone interested in my
Ensoniq sound card (which doesn't work with esound, but, well, it's
still useful...) :-)
