Unhappy Quake 3 arena and XMMS

When i have newly turned my machine on, i can play q3 without any problems. but if i play some music in xmms then when i want to play q3, the sound is gone. i cant play any good without sound.

Anyone having some idea of whats wrong?

your soundcard is probably not supporting duplex sound (mean it can play 1 sound at a time, not more). Search about "ALSA" and "OSS" (I don't remember what is what, my sound card doesn't support any duplex anyways), the kernl sound module doesn't support duplex natively as it seems.
