I now am subscribed to the K12LTSP channel on RHN and
have ltsp_esound at version 0.4. I still get the error
above in KDE and a slightly different in GNOME.

I only have SOUND_DAEMON set in the Defaults section.

This is good to know.

I never did see a pause with an error. It seems to
detect the sound card, A97 or something, and starts
the speakers buzzing a strange clicking buz. Others
have reported this. As soon as I run something like
TuxType the buzzing stops and is fine until the
terminal is rebooted.

I get a blank line on both of the echo commands
whether run from root or a regular user's account.
Right now programs like TuxType have sound but I don't
get anything from websites with Flash Apps and I can't
get the volume app to work. Any ideas.

Thank you.
