Our default ESD setup doesn't but then ESD stands for ESD Should Die 8).
ESD does support this but getting it working with ssh tunnels is pretty horrid
I like ESD... At least i did under OSS. Nowadays ALSA does the mixing,
so... But (having resently heard from another admin, an i agree)
multimedia (and removable storage) is really the only reason to avoid
thin clients - exept that, it rocks! (if i just could have quake 3 and
removable storage on a (purpose-built) thin client, my main box would
happen to be in the basement in less that 10 minutes - no noise, bootup
time=time for an LCD to start (less than one secound), little desktop
real estate used... ahh. Mac's new shiny litle toy: mwah hah hah luser!)
Btw. in most enviroments, XDMCP runs *without* ssh, right?
And i *still* wonder where to file that RFE. Which component?
