eh? I have sound with flash and I don't have esd installed.
I don't have proper hardware mixing though, so when I want to hear
sound with flash I usually have to restart firefox or it doesn't work.
Presumably this is fixable, and is due to flash using oss rather than
alsa, but I haven't really tried.
On a computer with a soundcard that does do hardware mixing (and without
esd installed) I could get sound with flash whilst other things were
playing sound though.
