Is there a way to release your sound device?
I'm using KDE, which gives me quite a few problems with running sound on games, telling me the device /dev/dsp is busy.
I know that using gnome would give me less problems of this nature as kde hogs sound devices badly, but I would like to know if there is a way of releasing the sound device from any usage.
btw, usually if i look if anything is using /dev/dsp it says nothing, but it lies, it lies!
any help would be appreciated.
ps FC5 btw
