Is esound 0.2.33 supposed to work somehow? Is it supposed to work by default,
without any configuration?
I'm asking because esound does not work at all for me. I have just installed,
on empty 2.0A -current system, gnome 2.6, and started experimenting with things.
When trying to use gnome sounds (Configuration -> Sound (or whatever it is
in English)), esound *always* hangs. For example
- Go to Config -> Sound
- Turn on the sound server knob.
- Go to next page, browse the sounds
- Play something; it plays
- Play next thing, the program hangs
esound is either in aud_dr or aud_wr
attaching with gdb shows either
- Wait for ever, esound comes back
- Play next sound -> hang

I've done nothing to configure any audio stuff; just plain gnome 2.6 install.
I also installed audio/mad, and tried to play MP3 with "-o esd:localhost". It
played perhaps one second, and then hung up the same way as gnome stuff
I know the soundcard works fine, because I have a tracker module player
program that uses native NetBSD audio(4) interface, and it has no
problems. Oh, and madplay without -o esd worked fine, too (I guess madplay
