I also have EL5 (well, CentOS5) and get:

rpm -qa | grep esound

The server has numerous i386 and x86_64 packages installed which rely
on the esound modules.

Given all the dependencies, removing esound is just flat out scary so
before doing so, a question.  I added the EPEL repo suggested by Nils,
and pulseaudio installed, but when I select the
pulseaudio-esound-compat rpm, I get a conflict with esound already
being installed.  Since I am forcing the removal of esound, I'm
guessing that while it is removed is a good time to install all the
pulseaudio pieces (for the server, leaving the thin clients with esd
for the moment).

Thanks for the advice.  It is nice to know this works for someone so
there is hope for getting it working here.
