Unable to connect to UNIX socket /tmp/.esd/socket error while using grip


hi i did verbose mode while trying to rip a cd with grip because i've been having a problem with the system freezing up when i try to rip a cd. this message popped up right when i hit rip and encode

Unable to connect to UNIX socket /tmp/.esd/socket

i don't know if that could be any thing related to the system freezing up. Im not sure what it means.

[jeff@localhost .esd]$ ls -l
total 4
srwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Jul 19 20:25 socket

that is the permissions for /tmp/.esd/socket. they seem to be in order. Can anyone help me? thanks for any replies in return.

Firstly, what are the perms on the parent directories?

you have the sticky bit set - (srwxrwxrwx).
If the perms of the parent directories prohibit writing - then you will not be allowed to write to that file.
Try to cat some junk at that socket:
Code:
cat /dev/urandom > /tmp/.esd/socket
What happens?

[jeff@localhost ~]$ cat /dev/urandom > /tmp/.esd/socket
bash: /tmp/.esd/socket: No such device or address

drwxrwxrwt 19 root root 4096 Aug 23 04:02 tmp

that is the permissions of tmp. what does the t mean?

drwxrwxrwt 2 root root 4096 Jul 19 20:25 .esd

and the permissions for /tmp/.esd

thanks for your reply.
