I can't get sound from GAIM. I keep getting the following error when I run GAIM from Xterm.

libao - OSS cannot set rate to 22050

What can I do. I don't know much about linux

I'm running Red Hat 9 with Fluxbox.

Click on preferences, sound, and ensure that the sound method is set to "ESD".   If nothing appears to happen but you don't seem to be getting an error be sure that you have your volume turned up!

 If it's already set to ESD or if that changes doesn't fix things then we'll have to do some more investigation.
