Whenever I try to play a sound in Etoys on Fedora 10, the VM logs a  

soundStart: snd_add_pcm_handler: Function not implemented

This has been reported a couple of times but did not make it to this  
list yet, apparently:


A workaround is to force using OSS instead of ALSA using the -vm-sound- 
OSS option.

I filed this at


(wondered why it was auto-assigned to Tim - maybe Dave would be a  
better taker now?)
