Here is a problem I have never run across before, anyone know anything about sound in linux please drop me a line. For the record I am running 2.4.2-18 kernel version, I have no sound card installed just using sound off the motherboard (which is pretty darn good by the way), the motherboard is Gigabyte K7 Triton 400 GA-7VAXP if that helps.

Here is the problem:
esd: Esound sound daemon already running or stale UNIX socket
This socket allready exists indicating esd is all ready running

-Occurs after the second sound event. The first sound even works fine, but after the second things start locking up (Gnome, gaim) I tried running in TWM and that is how I found the error message, by running gaim in a terminal window. What happens is the first IM sound everything is fine but on the second sound I get the error message. Same with other applications which use sound.

Any help? Anyone?
Thanks in advance.

Are you having problems with playing 2 sounds at the same time? Like if you are listening to an MP3 and then gaim loads and it beeps?
