>How do I kill esd/alsa?

Login from a text console (Ctrl-Alt-F1) and use:
   killall -v esd

> [gnome] does not repond.

If this is the bug I think it is¹, this might fix it for now:
   gconftool-2 -s /desktop/gnome/sound/enable_esd -t bool false

Maybe that was it Sertaç.  I got into GNOME the last part of the day, and apparently things were back to normal.  I was desperately trying to get the sound working and I might have accidently enabled the esd sound on GNOME.  I am learning also KDE uses arts.  I hope that GNOME works again, I got it back and I hope all is well.  I did the following
$ rm -rf .gconf/
$ rm -rf .gconfd/
$ rm -rf .gnome/
$ rm -rf .gnome2/
$ rm -rf .gnome2_private/
$ rm -rf qt* ????/
I tried just for the sake of it as I was leaving work to log back in and it worked.  I got the panels, the clock, etc.  Hopefully tomorrow all is well again. Thanks for replying to the message.
