Soundserver issues, running multiple audio hungrey apps.......


Soundserver issues, running multiple audio hungrey apps.......

I am running Kubuntu on this machine and loving it, only the issue is I am trying to listen to music in amarok, playing wow in cedega and trying to talk with players using skype.

But neither of the soundservers support multiple applications?? (Windows soundserver does )

Someone here must have come across this issue before, has anyone figured out a workaround? I currently have to run skype on another machine on headphones and have WoW playing on a seperate machine on loudspeaker, this sucks.....

Please help me.....

Do a search here for ' dmix '. It is used by alsa to except multiple inputs to goto a single device block. Usually in a file in your home directory called .asoundrc.

You probably just need to set alsa as the default sound system for your apps or DE.

SOLVED!! Many many thanks....

Although the sound is slightly choppy in places its good enough too stick with. Maybe thats just the machine lagging for running so many apps at time.

But for now its working..


Many thanks again!
