Re: Sound over X (was Re: X and sound on debian, really wanted!)

Hi, again.

Managed to get it working (sort of!).

I have  a desktop machine that sits in another room because the flashing 
lights and the noisy fans would not be allowed into the living room.

I have a laptop that I use all the time connected to the desktop. I run X on 
the desktop and view it's contents on the laptop with the following command;

X -query desktop :1

I am not able to get to log in remotely using kdm.

First of all, I had to install nas (the server package) on the laptop.

Then I installed nas-bin (the client utils) on the desktop.

I then had to change the /etc/default/nas file on the laptop to have the "-aa" 
option to allow unauthenticated connections.

I was then able to run


on the laptop's konsole and it said everything was fine.

I was also able to execute the following on a remote konsole on the desktop 
(i.e. sat at the laptop in KDE on the desktop):

auinfo -audio tcp/laptop:8000

and get the results I needed.

When I then execute:

audial -audio tcp/laptop:8000 -volume 50 0123

and get the tones come out of the laptop!!!

Unfortunately, when I then tell KDE to use the NAS, I get segfaults - so it 
does not work.

Next I'm going to look at ESD and then aRTS if that fails.

Will let you know.

Marriage is the triumph of imagination over intelligence.  Second marriage is 
the triumph of hope over experience.
