I've installed Mandriva 2007.1 with KDE 3.5.6 and I can't get more than
a 1/4 volume level I've got elsewhere with other distros & KDE releases.

When I try to set higher the volume levels by Kmenu -> System ->
Configuration -> Monitorize -> Sound
A dialog ask to run esd in konsole but I don't know how. This is the output:

[root at localhost ximo]# esd --help
Esound version 0.2.37

Usage: esd [options]

  -v --version  print version information
  -d DEVICE     force esd to use sound device DEVICE
  -b            run server in 8 bit sound mode
  -r RATE       run server at sample rate of RATE
  -as SECS      free audio device after SECS of inactivity (-1 to disable)
  -unix         use unix domain sockets instead of tcp/ip
  -tcp          use tcp/ip sockets instead of unix domain
  -public       make tcp/ip access public (other than localhost)
  -promiscuous  start unlocked and owned (disable authenticaton) NOT
  -terminate    terminate esd daemon after last client exits
  -noterminate  do not terminate esd daemon after last client exits
  -nobeeps      disable startup beeps
  -beeps        enable startup beeps
  -trust        start esd even if use of /tmp/.esd can be insecure
  -port PORT    listen for connections on PORT (only for tcp/ip)
  -bind ADDRESS binds to ADDRESS (only for tcp/ip)

Possible devices are:  /dev/dsp, /dev/dsp2, etc.
