I am running ubuntu 10.04 and would like to redirect all the sound it outputs to my mac over the network. Is there any way to do this? I would like to hear sound from the mac as well.

There are several so-called sound servers that can forward sound from one machine to another. Each has its own protocol, so you need matching programs on both machines.

I've never done this with a Mac involved, so actual experience reports would be welcome if you try these suggestions. In particular, some configurations may work but have noticeable latency, which is a problem for some uses.
