[pulseaudio-discuss] jack, pulseaudio and esd => silence

I am trying to get audio from Jack applications on the local
machine to a remote esd server via pulseaudio. I am
running debian etch on amd64

The local machine seems to run jack just fine, starting it
with qjackctl.  I can connect audio to the pulse inputs.

The remote esd server seems to be running OK too - I can
test it with esdplay.

And the pulseaudio on the local machine works too - I can
use paplay to play wav files on the esd server.

I can see that there is an audio signal coming through
from jack (via pulseaudio-module-jack), by invoking the
vumeter from paman.

The problem is that I cannot get any audio from the
jack clients through pulseaudio to the esd server :(

Is this the same problem?:


I do not have realtime-lsm installed and kernel is configured

The problem occurs even when all programs run as root.
Do I need the kernel configuration CONFIG_SECURITY_CAPABILITIES=m?

Is there a better way to get jack talking to esd servers?

Thanks in advance for any clues!

(sorry if this is sent twice!)
