Weird soundproblems...


I have this weird soundproblem, each time I start the computer and are on my way top play Mp3's with the xmms, I get the error that some other application are using it. But which one could that be?

Anyway, I solve this problem each time with removeing and than adding the soundcard.. than I can play mp3's with xmms without problems!

Im using the ALSA, but the same problem stays with ARTS and ESound and even with OSS...

This thing is starting to enoing me..

With command "lsof" (list open files) you see which processess are using your resources. It is probably some arts daemon, or similar.

ehmm... that did not help so much, the list is to long so I cant see all running applications when i run the command.

Anyway, something is weird.. when I uninstall and reinstalls the soundcard, it works like a god. But when I shutdown the computer and then restart it, I have the same problem.

I can't play music with Xmms, and know when I wanted Kmix to start when the kde starts, then Kmix crashes... but there are no problems when I have reinstalled the soundcard, until I restart the computer eg.
