sound, xmms and skype solution for ubuntu

sometimes skype hangs in ubuntu. sometimes xmms hangs or has no sound.
problem seems to be the esd server.
unabling this fixes the problem, but then other sounds can not be heard anymore, until the esd is enabled again.

to solve the problem fot ever, you can do the following :

open a shell

type sudo gedit /etc/esound/esd.conf

in the script that opens, change the following auto_spawn=0 to auto_spawn=1

after that, save and exit. reboot system, or restart esd module.
