I've struggled with otther non gnome aps that want access to the
/dev/dsp and from what I ahve gatherd from the posts you can do a few
things. First you can run the app like this: esddsp <programname>.
This will let the programes output paass through esd to the sound card.
ANother option is to run esd like this esd -as 2. This is supposed to
tell esd to free the /dev/dsp device up so its not locked. I guess you
can also use esdctl to suspend/resume esd.
I'm trying to get Quake2 to work without haveing to leave gnome. An
untested solution at least on my part is to do the following:
cd <location of esd> redhat rpms put it in /usr/bin
mv esd esd.bin
echo "#!/bin/sh" > esd
echo "./esd.bin -as 2" >> esd
chmod a+x esd
This essentually creates a script that replaces the esd program that
runs esd -as 2.
