Just recode your mp3's to ogg files and use `ogg123 -d arts' or Noatun, use kmplayer for movies and then think hard what you need esd/oss for again -:). I can say that the autosuspend feature works for me(tm) on -CURRENT and KDE 3.2-CVS, which will be released real soon now. Just make sure you disable a lot of unneeded sounds in the desktop, like 'shwoosh' on window resize, 'whammm' on window closure and so on, as these add to the 5 seconds. -- Melvyn ======================================================= FreeBSD sarevok.webteckies.org 5.2-CURRENT FreeBSD 5.2-CURRENT #3: Tue Dec 30 14:31:47 CET 2003 [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/SAREVOK_NOAPM_NODEBUG i386 =======================================================
