For me esddsp isn't working. Could the problem be that I compiled esound
with libc6, and that for example rvplayer is a libc5 program?

Using esddsp on libc5 programs results in a segmentation fault. On libc6
I'm getting

/usr/local/lib/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

man explains that the list of libraries in LD_PRELOAD needs to be
whitespace-separated. Indeed, changing the : in the esddsp script into
a space solves the problem for libc6 programs.

I'm using in case that makes a difference.
