redhat 9 sound problem


I have redhat 9 installed and to listen to mp3's I use XMMS.

After redhat has been running for a few days. When I try to open XMMS and play mp3's I get an error popup which says that the Sound card is busy it may be in use by another device. (im paraphrasing the error).

Does anybody know how I can check what device is using the sound?
or does someone know of a way I can get the sound working again without rebooting? Like killing a process or restarting the sound service ???

When the error happens ps xa | grep arts in a console window then kill number_of_arts_process or install the xmms-arts plugin and use that for the sound output instead of oss.

thanks that helped.

Weird thing is the error sometimes comes and then corrects itself.
Guess redhat hasnt figured out sound yet.
