Cant get sound at the same time, from Kaffeine and amarok?
 
Hello,

I have gnome, and run kaffeine and amarok.

to get the sound, it is either one or the other one.

why alsa cannot handle multiple apps under Lenny?

I'm just guessing here, but I suspect this is not software-related, but hardware-related.

My guess is that the computer sound system can only handle one thing at a time. I know that, when I've been using, say, YouTube and I go to start XMMS, I get an error from XMMS saying it can't find the soundcard. After I wait a few moments, XMMS can find the sound card.

How many soundcards do you have?

If I'm wrong, I hope someone corrects me.

Did you google the problem? There are multiple pages with possible solutions.
