nv audio working in kernel-2.6-test6
Choose kernel source config options for alsa and alsa to "emulate oss" and then the nforce item.
I installed debian packages for libesd-alsa0 and gnome-alsamixer.
As usual everything is muted by default. Use a commandline mixer in a startup script where esd is loaded to set default volume up.
cd plays ok in gnome-alsamixer
realplayer says it can't find host unix and it says maybe another app is using the audio device
