Debian Lenny: System Sounds

Debian 5 (Lenny)
Linux kernel: 2.6.26-2-686
Gnome: 2.22.3

So far I don’t have system sounds working on my install. Sound does work, I just don’t have start-up and shut-down sounds. Things like that.
When I go to System > Preferences > Sound, and go to the Sound tab, play system sounds is checked. Still no system sounds. Let’s try this. Through synaptic, I installed gnome-audio and esound. Still no sound. I then, through synaptic, installed libesd-alsa0. Installing libesd-alsa0 replaces libesd-0. Now the system sounds work. If not… reboot. They should now.

Update: System/Gnome sounds are a bit annoying. I think I’ll turn them off.
