Xine fails to play DVD with snd_pcm_open()


Hello,

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?

Thanks,

Joe

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.

I'm using alsa. Neither arts nor esd are running. Sound works fine through xmms, just not through xine.

Thanks,
