xine "Audio output unavailable. Device is busy."
I have Kaffeine to watch DVDs on my machine. It was working fine, except that my 5.1 speaker system is reduced to 2.1 (front right and left, subwoofer), for reasons I don't understand. In an attempt to fix this, I was reading about the .asoundrc file that you can create in your home directory. I created the default file as described over at the ALSA site:
However, when I went back to Kaffeine, I now get:
xine Message "Audio output unavailable. Device is busy. ()"
I tried deleting .asoundrc, and restarting my machine, but I still get the same message. I don't understand what I could have done to modify the system. Can anyone enlighten me?
