Xine fails to play DVD with snd_pcm_open()
I just installed Slackware 9.1 and Xine. When I try to play a DVD with Xine, it fails. The error is:
>>> Check if another program don't already use PCM <<<
snd_pcm_open() failed:-13:Permission denied
I'm not sure what to check in /dev to make sure the permissions are open.
Audio works, because xmms works fine. Any ideas?
Sorry, some details I should have put in the first one:
2.4.22 kernel, 1.0.3 Alsa driver, and my sound card is an Audigy 2.
lsmod shows, among other things:

If you're using a sound system (like arts (kde) or esd (gnome)), you might have to turn it off before running xine. The arts daemon is usually pretty good about auto-suspending after 30 seconds of unuse or so, but it can't hurt to kill it off.
Another option is to use a program like soundwrapper that will try to redirect sound requests.
