mplayer refuses to kill, no more sound!
Okay, I'm still using OSS (don't ask, huge battle) anyways, so I can only have one program use the soundcard at a time. Doesn't really bother me except in instances like this. I was running quite a few things, and I ended up crashing mplayer. No big deal. I do a little killall mplayer, and it seems to do it okay. But it doesn't. So I try killall -w mplayer (so I know its REALLY dead, since it waits for the program to get killed), but it never gets killed. I've had it on for, oh 20 minutes and nothing has happened. Now, normally this wouldn't be a problem, except, since mplayer was using my soundcard when it crashed, it still technically _is_ using my soundcard (albeit in trying-to-die mode), so I can't do anything else sound related. Which, I might add, totally is uncool. Is there anyway I can restart my sound or totally kill mplayer so I can get my sound back?
