perhaps esd didn't die
ps aux | grep esd
if it is still there try killall -KILL esd
(this will also show the ps aux | grep esd command)
perhaps you have esd complied with alsa support and arts compiled with
oss and haven't installed the oss compatability modules?
type lsmod see what drivers your useing
ls -l /dev/dsp
it should be a symlink to real device file (probably /dev/dsp0) whilst
your there check the permission are correct (the permission on the file
pointed to by /dev/dsp not /dev/dsp itself (a quick and dirty way to
check that it's not a permission problems is to run the program as root
but rember that any temp files it creates will be owned by root so you
might have to get rid of them manually and obviously this is a securinty
presumably nothing works using /dev/dsp? xmms is good for checking this,
right click options->preferences and change the output plugin to oss (if
its not there it's because you haven't installed it)
