having problems with esound


whenever I try to access esound I get the following error message:

tlaloc@rn103188:~> esd
ALSA lib pcm_hw.c:1057:(snd_pcm_hw_open) open /dev/snd/pcmC0D0p failed: Device or resource busy
tlaloc@rn103188:~>

the reason why I am asking this is because I am having trouble with the sound on my computer which runs SUSE linux 9.1.

Could this be the cause of my problem.

by the way the sound card that I have is an SiS 7012

and my computer is a Winbook J4 Green version

Hm... not to sound like a repetitive idiot, but the description says it all, Device is busy. Did you type it in more than once?

Well that is your integrated sound so it is being detected properly. Not sure but maybe there is some kind of irq conflict =/ .

Have you tried any other kind of music players?

Hello,

I emailed winbook computer's technical support personnel and they told me that my computer does not have a sound card, instead it has a chip built in the model of the chip is as follows:

Sigmatel STAC 9721

do you know if there are any linux drivers for this chip? I can hear sound fine now the only problem that I have is that once in a while when I go to a site that has an online game or something similar the sound does not work.

Well most linos's already have a great support for many devices. All i can say is to look in other forums or google for it.
