I was fooling around with grdesktop the other day and wanted to be able to play my Rhapsody account on my laptop while using it remotely. I noticed that playing the sound on the local machine sucked for me. It seems like you need let it write directly to /dev/dsp for the sound to work. The laptop was sitting right next to me so it seemed like I should just play the sound on the laptop speakers. I noticed that rdesktop had an option to do this but I couldn't find one in grdesktop. So I added one! You can find the patch here it should apply to the latest cvs. I sent an email to the maintainer but haven't heard back from him, so I'll send him another email and I figured I would post it here also. Enjoy!
