why EsounD does not start with /etc/init.d/esound start ?
Why EsounD is not started with something like /etc/init.d/esound start
like all other daemons, only it is started as a user logs in, well, in
fact I don't know very well what starts EsounD, but I have big
problems with it, it's a mess-up.
First of all, I have a machine on which I want to run EsounD, but I do
not run any Gnome or KDE on it, I don't even have a monitor or
keyboard connected to that machine. I only log in with ssh, and even
that I do rarely.
This machine has connected speakers, and what I want to do is to play
sound over the network from an app running on a different machine on
that machine. Otherwise I would not want a sound daemon at all.
Why don't package EsounD like all other daemons, so that when I do
aptitude install esound
everything gets set-up properly and running automagically at each
bootup from /etc/init.d/esound and that all users can play sound
through the daemon. I find it really strange that EsounD is run as one
user, becasue all other users cannot play sound through it then.
