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.

great old world of kde
(ever heard someone say kde sucks)
kde uses a deamon called arts
which is initialized when kde starts up(kderc)
so you have 3 choices
1.remove arts from the scripts
ps -aux|grep arts
now get the pid of arts
kill -s 9 <pid of arts>
and use oss
3.don't use kde
what happens if you disable arts (for now) and once inside KDE, if you try and use a cd player or xmms or something else like that... does xmms complain about accessing dsp or does it have no problem playing mp3?

nope you can instead use oss
by selecting the output plugin as oss
You know... I've been running into a similiar problem... last night I installed 2.5.67 kernel which comes with its own emu10k1 driver for my SB Audigy. (I tried to download the driver from sourceforge but it wouldn't compile against the new kernel). The emu10k1 loads just fine and xmms can play audio with the OSS plugin, but if I start ESD then ESD (plays three beeps at startup) gets caught in a loop and just keeps repeating its startup... seems to me that the driver (emu10k1) has some issues... perhaps a similiar situation is occurring with your sound server?
