How do I kill esd/alsa?  

This is the same laptop for which there is no sound. 
I have trashed the ~/.gnome ~/.gnome2, ~/.gconf
~/.gconfd/ and ~/.gnome2_private/ directories in the
hope that I'll get back gnome, but I have not been
successful.  I created two accounts and have logged in
to gnome and as root user copied the .gnome*
directories unto the original account to no avail. 
For the meantime, KDE is working awesome, I just need
to yum install klaptop to see how much battery time I
have left.  

The users I have created default into GNOME.  When I
try to logout, the computer does not repond.  When I
try to shutdown.  The computer does not respond. 
Pressing CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE logs me out and/or shows
me when I shutdown or logged out.  The other test
machine, everything works except that if I forget to
leave a cd data/or music in one of the drives, I will
not have access to that drive via k3b/nautilus/etc.  I
have mentioned this several times, but I guess it is
not important.

Wireless working -> yes
Gnome is back -> yes
Sound -> No, but working on it.  

Replying to myself but for completeness of the thread.  I got GNOME back as my own user.  I do not know exactly what fixed the issue.  But GNOME desktop is back.  Now to the sound issue.
