PulseAudio ESD compatibility layer
PulseAudio, previously known as Polypaudio, is a sound server for POSIX and
WIN32 systems. It is a drop in replacement for the ESD sound server with
much better latency, mixing/re-sampling quality and overall architecture.
This package contains the ESD compatibility components used by some
older versions of complete desktop environments, e.g., GNOME, and
many useful applications. It enables a PulseAudio sound server to
fully replace ESD.
