I just migrated to systemd, and wrote this quick unit file for starting esound on boot:

Feel free to add to the build if you like. It would be called "esd.service", and should go in /usr/lib/systemd/system

@g2oo7fy Well, mainly because 0.2.8 is not the latest stable version. Also, as you can easily check 41 > 8. Simply, the ESound original page is just heavily outdated. Cheers

The website states: Last Stable Version - version 0.2.8

Is there a reason, why this package is still with version 0.2.41?

@netfun81 Hi, thanks for reporting. This happens for a missing "-lm" link flag. Fixed in 0.2.41-3. Let me know if you encounter other issues. Cheers

I need esound for music in a game. Tried installing from AUR esound 0.2.41 and also manually compiling downloaded from gnome site. It configures ok and during "make" it stops with these errors:

/usr/bin/ld: esd.o: undefined reference to symbol 'sinf@@GLIBC_2.0'
/usr/bin/ld: note: 'sinf@@GLIBC_2.0' is defined in DSO /lib/ so try adding it to the linker command line
/lib/ could not read symbols: Invalid operation
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [esd] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/kclin/Downloads/esound-0.2.41'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/kclin/Downloads/esound-0.2.41'
make: *** [all] Error 2

Arch is up to date with all packages. Any thoughts? I have tried older versions of esound to no avail.
