MPlayer mute...

At last MPlayer is working, from the konsole, but it reports the sound device busy and hence there's no sound when playing back video files.
What can I check out in order to get it working?

sound ok but...

Thanks for the tip, the sound's ok now.

I can play mpeg videos with sound but there are error remarks concerning font.conf and skin.conf.
I think I've installed files to incorrect destinations. Can you tell me the correct locations to decompress the font and skin tarballs?

I'd like to encode avi files to mpeg1. What else do I need?
