No sound in certain applications after kernel upgrade


Hi,

I did an upgrade of my kernel to 2.6.10-5-386 using my distro (ubuntu) upgrade software. Everytime I try to launch unreal tournament 2004, I get this error

open /dev/[sound/]dsp: Device or resource busy

It works fine with mp3's and ut2004 works fine (except the sound). Does anyone know how to fix that.

Thanks in advance

lsmod gave me this:
Code:
snd_mpu401_uart         7168  1 snd_cmipci
snd_rawmidi            22944  1 snd_mpu401_uart
snd_seq_device          8332  2 snd_opl3_lib,snd_rawmidi
snd                    50276  11 snd_bt87x,snd_cmipci,snd_pcm_oss,snd_mixer_oss, snd_pcm,snd_opl3_lib,snd_timer,snd_hwdep,snd_mpu401_uart,snd_rawmidi,snd_seq_dev
I am assuming it uses OSS?? Also alsaconf does nothing, it says there is no such thing.. so no, I am not using Alsa

Sorry, I hadn't noticed that you could play mp3s. I'm barking up the wrong tree.

Not a problem I could play mp3's with xmms after i changed it from OSS to ESound driver (in xmms properties). Ubuntu/Debian is awesome.. this is the only problem I am have with this

I believe the problem is that the esd is not releasing the dsp. The workaround for this is to edit /etc/esound/esd.conf and make sure that the default options line reads like this (the exact number is up to you):
default_options= -as 3

That should release the device after 3 seconds of inactivity. You can also add -nobeeps, if you wish.
