Icewm/icesound trouble on SuSE 8.2 - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Are there any readers knowledgeable about running Icewm on SuSE 8.2? I am getting consistent floating-point errors trying to start icesound, whether I select OSS or ESD. I've tried recompiling esound and icewm from source, but it changes nothing. I've tested the sound files from every angle I know, and they work everywhere but icesound, so I doubt there's file corruption. Since esound works in Gnome 2, but not in XFce 3 or anywhere else, and esdplay fails without esd running, I suspect it's actually something in esound, but icesound won't work on OSS either. BTW, alsa is the default ...

    Default Icewm/icesound trouble on SuSE 8.2

    Are there any readers knowledgeable about running Icewm on SuSE 8.2? I
    am getting consistent floating-point errors trying to start icesound,
    whether I select OSS or ESD.

    I've tried recompiling esound and icewm from source, but it changes
    nothing. I've tested the sound files from every angle I know, and they
    work everywhere but icesound, so I doubt there's file corruption.

    Since esound works in Gnome 2, but not in XFce 3 or anywhere else, and
    esdplay fails without esd running, I suspect it's actually something in
    esound, but icesound won't work on OSS either. BTW, alsa is the default
    in SuSE.

    I'll report the solution I stumbled across:

    Compiling from latest sources (1.2.12), I am required to use this
    precise command line input for it to work:

    icesound --interface=ESD --sample-dir=/home/jeh/.icewm/sounds/

    Note caps, etc. This after manually starting esd. Abbreviations, etc.
    result in "Illegal instruction" error. Previously, even this did not
    work, as I got only floating point errors. Thus, with this different
    error, I felt I was somehow close, and tried a dozen different
    commandline combinations until it worked.
