There's no error message from XMMS if i run MPlayer first, no. It just reports itself to be playing, but with no sound.
The devices are still there and I can cat them even when sound has gone.
the .asoundrc file made no difference except to upset XMMS.
Without it there, XMMS reports the following devices -
Default PCM device (default)
VIA 8237: VIA 8237 (hw:0,0)
VIA 8237: VIA 8237 (hw:0,1)
But if I put it there, I only get Default PCM device, which refuses to work - XMMS says it can't access the card.
I run MPlayer with -ao alsa, and XMMS is set to hw:0,0
I noticed I can get sound back by running
But then I get the same problem again...
