"/dev/dsp: Device or resource busy"


Hi, i'm trying to set up my AWE64 ISA without sucess. I've already configured the isapnp.conf and modules.conf [got the instructions from some tutorials] properly but the soundcard still doesn't work.

I run Slackware 9.1 with the 2.6.2 kernel and OSS. All the modules load correctly [sound, soundcore, sb, sb_lib, uart401 and awe_wave]. If i do a "cat /proc/device", the sound interface appears as it shows up right at boot time.

But when i try to run some audio file, i get "/dev/dsp: Device or resource busy" ... Please, help me!

* Sorry about making you read the 1.512.659 question about this card, i searched for something that can help me before posting but couldn't find anything useful.

hmm, are you running kde? sometimes kde's sound effects can tie up the soundard resources from other programs...

It sounds like an IRQ conflict...

I haven't used ISA in ages, but I remember that it was difficult sometimes.
Check the Linux Documentation Project about this one.
