Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've recently read that to make multiple programs play sounds at one time I could use arts driver. I've configured arts and it seems to be working - xmms and frozen bubble both play music at the same time. But when I want wine or wineX to use arts sound driver (by changing in the winmm section the driver to winearts) I'm getting no sound. What's the problem?
I have Creative AudioPCI 128 with ens-1371 driver and, as it seems to be, mu SuSE 9.0 uses ALSA, although wine or winex' WineOSS driver works too (but then I can't play multiple sounds).
Originally posted by vinay_s_s A decent way of shutting arts will be:
artsshell -q terminate
killall artsd works as well
I've been doing so already, and it works. But I can't play background music at the same time I play games, while arts allows multi-sounding. Is it possible to use "multi-sounding" without arts?
Well if ur snd card doesnt support hardware mixing, then u'll have to struggle.
since i noticed that u have a ens1371, i can help u in a simple way:
1) use xmms to play background music (or u can use mplayer, which supports ALSA)
2) in xmms, choose o/p plugin as alsa, then click on configure, then choose audio device as hw:0,1
3) say yes , then start playing in xmms,
4) then start ur games in wine , u will be able to hear it all
Thanx, I'll try it out at weekend, only then I have access to my home pc where the problem is. I hope I'll be able to use winamp as well as xmms.
Should I use winealsa.drv in wine or wineoss? For now it works with wineoss (it's strange because when I type in lsmod I get snd-xxxx drivers, that's why I said I have ALSA, and in KDE control center all devices are marked as ALSA devices - I didn't install ALSA drivers myself, they must 've been automatically installed when I installed SuSE)
