Install on both the client and the server. On the client, run something like this before you start X:
client% esd -tcp -public -promiscuous -beeps -trust -bind 10.0.0.1 where 10.0.0.1 is the IP address of the client's network interface. Connect to the server just as you have described. When ever you run a program that has esd support compiled in, the audio will be directed to the client. Programs compiled with ESD support appear to direct sound to the host indicated by the DISPLAY environment variable. That should set correctly if the server you're attaching to is running xdm, gdm, or kdm. You may also have to set ESPEAKER, but I've found that just DISPLAY works for me. -- Regards, Doug _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
