sound dead after running wine


This one game I have uses DirectSound and it will play fine in Wine. However, when I exit the game, sound does not work in any other program. If I run Wine again with the same game the sound still works there, but nowhere else. The only solution I've found is restarting the computer, but sometimes that is an inconvenience. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike

Could it be that wine is still active?

There's gotta be another way. I'm horribly new to this so I'm sure there's something stupid I'm missing. I know when an ESD program causes the sound to die running "fuser /dev/dsp" tells me what's running it so I can kill it. That doesn't work here. I don't know what sound system wine uses. I don't know if anything I just said makes any sense!!!

If you type at the console:

gnome-system-monitor

Do you see anything that may be using sound and perhaps kill it?

Well, it seems as if no device is using /dev/dsp after I exit the program, but something isn't right. For example, usually if the sound is in use when I run xine, the audio output is disabled. However, if I run xine at the point I'm at, it thinks the sound is playing just fine. As for XMMS, it thinks it's playing the file but it zooms through it. Any other ideas? Is there a way to physically shut down /dev/dsp and restart it?
