on my system i use gkrellmms to listen to music nearly all the time. however, this seems to stop any other sounds from being played. sounds i would like to be able to hear while playing music are my new mail notifications and battery alerts (both from gkrellm), gaim sounds and the download warnings from d4x etc.
what is the best app to use to play these alert sounds (normal wave files generally)?
i dunno what d4x uses to play it's alerts but i have set gkrellm to use xmms in the meantime. i have checked around and i know i need a sounds server - i have esd on my system already.
other than that i need help
