Linux sound problem...
I have asked about the problem that my Mandrake Linux 10 being only capable of playing sound for one application at a time. People say it has something to do with sound server. I installed esd but nothing changed so I searched google again and read the Linux Sound HOWTO. According to the doc it says I should make programs make request for sound through the sound server instead of through the device directly. So my question is how do I make programs request through the sound server (such as esd) so that multiple programs can use sound at the same time. (so I can play mp3 and gaim and flash player will still play sound)
Thanks in advance.
