Though it is what it does, that is why I got interested in it.
On Vanilla new install FC7 nasd do not start;
[init.d]# ./nasd status
nasd dead but subsys locked
2) My big problem is to have sound from my applications called in e.g.
mozilla/Firefox/seamonkey to have sound on the remote terminal when the
browser runs on server.
In the past (Netscape 4.79) I could just configure helpers (e.g.
realplay %s) and the browser would forward the stream or USRL to the
It does not work that way anymore as the entire mozilla development
seemingly becomes less Unix and therefore I look for a better solution
(hoepful for NAS).
3) So, you are saying that if I run nasd on the remote terminals and I
start a (compatible) program on the server from the remote terminal,
that sound will be streamed to the remote terminal sound-card? That is
exactly what I need. Should nasd also be started on the server?
