Debian Sarge.

Yes, I do have the libaudiofile0 and esound packages installed.

In the desktop preferences, I noticed that the option to 'Enable sound
server startup' was not ticked.  I tried ticking it and my ears were
immediately assaulted with static.  No amount of tweaking in the mixer
app seemed to make a difference.  So it would seem that sound is not
happy as far as GNOME is concerned, despite xmms and web browser audio
working fine.  I wouldn't have thought that the command-line cdplayer
would use esound though.
