I'm not having much luck. I installed esound on both client and server. I start esound on the server; esd &, the server responds with several beeps. On the client I start esd as described above, I also hear beeps when esd starts. I start X, then login to KDE. I start Xmms with esound enabled. I get an error saying 'can't open audio'. any ideas? _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
