Re: esound locking sound

Esound grabs /dev/dsp to manage it, so you can hear sounds from
different apps concurrently.  For example, hear warning or alert sounds
while playing mp3s or videos.

On sarge, for ogg123, you'll need to put this in  /etc/libao.conf or

That works for me.  See man libao.conf .

I wouldn't know about the games.  For xmms, Options -> preferences,
eSound.  For mplayer, ~/.mplayer/config , add:  ao=esd .

For flash, I needed to add this link:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libesd.so.0 /usr/lib/libesd.so.1

I never found this info in one place!  Hope this is helpful.

Yes. Some sound applications have options to use esd, i.e., mplayer.  Some don't have. In such case, you have to kill the esd.  That's life :-)
