Re: [K12OSN] Sound : my nemesis



Pulse is a replacement for esound so you can't have both installed at
the same time (thus the conflict). Remember that the newer flash plugin
only uses pulse.

It still needs the ports open on the server (and client) to allow the
networked sound to be distributed. Also, KDE sound must be tweaked to
make it work using the control panel. Once that works, it will need to
be distributed to the users.

What happens if a thin client is booted from a Knoppix disk? Does sound
work then?
