Linux sound problem...


I have asked about the problem that my Mandrake Linux 10 being only capable of playing sound for one application at a time. People say it has something to do with sound server. I installed esd but nothing changed so I searched google again and read the Linux Sound HOWTO. According to the doc it says I should make programs make request for sound through the sound server instead of through the device directly. So my question is how do I make programs request through the sound server (such as esd) so that multiple programs can use sound at the same time. (so I can play mp3 and gaim and flash player will still play sound)

Thanks in advance.

I suppose you'll need to configure output to the sound serer. In xmms for example you can choose the output plug-in. THat's where you should route sound to the server (e.g. alsa)

I have managed to play Mp3 in two different terminals with mpg123. And XMMS still works when mpg123 is playing mp3. But flashplayer, gaim and everything else still doesnt work.
