Charlie, I have my audio playing by using artsd, using speakers which connect
directly to my PC via optical (I don't use direct wired connections, only
optical or spdif). I can't seem to get any audio out of audacious, so I looked
into the preferences, and couldn't see any option to connect via artsd. OK, I'm
willing to change here if I must (not anxious, because artsd has so far
connected perfectly to everything else) but what driver would you recommend?
Jack? Or maybe esound?
I looked over jack, and was a little surprised to find not one word in that port
referring to how to set up rc.conf to autostart it, couldn't even find something
in /usr/local/etc/rc.d for it. How's jack start up? I haven't looked at esound
yet. I've got a X11 problem too, but I figured that was outside the stuff
you've been helping me on, so I asked that on another list.
