RE: [K12OSN] G3's up and running!



Thanks a lot.  I am sure many will benefit from this advice if it works.
I will try to test it today.  My sound works locally with YDL on my test
macs already, I will just have to make sure it is using esd.  I have a
iMac Bondi, iMac Indigo, iMac G4 flat panel, and a PowerBook WallStreet
to test this with.

Here's a theory on how to get sound to work in the environment,
completely untested ;-)


First, you'll want to try esd rather than nasd. Nasd is a pain to 
compile and the default K12LTSP one won't work on PPC. Esd will be
included in YDL, so that is a better bet.

Make sure sound is working before making the "-query" change to inittab.

Once sound is working as a "fat" client, in addition to making the
"-query" change, also add this line to /etc/inittab


	esd:5:respawn:/bin/esd -nobeeps -tcp -port 16001


I can't remember off-hand (and can't test at the moment) if esd
automatically runs as a daemon or not. The man page implies that it does
not. But if it does, the above line will have to be changed
to:

	esd:5:once:/bin/esd -nobeeps -tcp -port 16001


Now you can set your K12LTSP server to use esd, in lts.conf set:

	SOUND_DAEMON     = "esd"


If my theory is correct, sound should now work with the mac in "thin"
mode.
