I am trying to make my own Error beep handler for linux (rev 2.9 rc1),  
because i don't like the internal beep.
First Rev wouldn't make any sounds at all (besides the internal  
speaker when using "beep"), so I reinstalled the ESD package, and  
added the sound mixer client. Now Rev makes static sound, similar to  
radio, in the length of the chosen wav sound file (the same files that  
work properly in the system sound pane).

I'm not sure if I have missed something obvious, due to not  
understanding how linux sounds are supposed to work, or if this is a  

Can anyone help me single in on one or the other?
