"SLC5X: system environment/daemons: esound
esound - Allows several audio streams to play on a single audio device.
EsounD, the Enlightened Sound Daemon, is a server process that mixes
several audio streams for playback by a single audio device. For
example, if you're listening to music on a CD and you receive a
sound-related event from ICQ, the two applications won't have to
queue for the use of your sound card.
Install esound if you'd like to let sound applications share your
audio device. You'll also need to install the audiofile package.
