Are you running enlightenment? It is refering to Enlightenment Sound Daemon. If you need it just grab the copy at http://www.tux.org/~ricdude/news.html

how do I stop xmms from trying to load this library? as I don't need it in Slackware. I just load the SBLive module and use /dev/dsp and /dev/audio.

Do you think that I need this sound daemon installed or should I just not have xmms try to load it?

thnks

How did you install XMMS, from source, or just pre-compiled binary?
I bet you didn't upgraded it and you are using fresh install from slack, so I suggest if you are really want to get rid of the warning, download the latest xmms source and compile it yourself, in this case you are in control what's loaded and what's not.

No problem. Just a fact to know everything you are compiling yourself you are building for your own environment, and everything you are installing via pre-compiled binaries you are getting files (usually binary) w/o even knowing what's inside

I just installed Slack 8.1 and don't have Gnome or KDE (and don't want em')
and am using the default xmms that came with it. Could it be cause I don't have Gnome that I'm getting this error?

thanks again.

If I remember correctly xmms needs esd even when compiled from source. Esd is usually installed with Gnome (but ca be without it). BTW Xmms may require gtk (well, I'm 99% sure it requires gtk).

It's not really an error. xmms can output sound through the Enlightened Sound Daemon (esd) if you have it; when you run xmms, it tries to find esd, but if you don't have it it just uses another method of outputing the sound. Unless the fact it writes something to the console is bothering you, there's really no problem here.

Hmm, but you have the same problem with a source tarball, unless you read and understand every line of code before you compile it.
