im using slackware kernel 2.6.3 kde 3.2

when i have one program using the sound card the other one can't use it.... is there a way to fix this?

i had the very same problem with
kernel 2.4.24 KDE3.2 Fedora Core 1.

the artsd server hogs the sound hard !

as root, when sound is nolonger working type
lsof /dev/dsp

i bet a program called artsd is using the sound card...

and typing killall artsd will temproerilly fix the problem correct ?

go into control center, and in the sound section, turn off artsd.

this works quite well.

it seems kde3.2 is a little buggy.

I had the same problem: just run GNOME (esound) and problem is fixed.
If you don't have Gnome installed: install esound.
