>How do I kill esd/alsa?
Login from a text console (Ctrl-Alt-F1) and use:
killall -v esd

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.
