Wine and native Linux programs can't play sound at the same time.

Hello linuxquestions!

I'm running Foobar2000 in Wine on an Arch Linux machine. Everything works well, but when I try to play audio when there's native Linux audio or video playing, I get the following error:

Unrecoverable playback error: Unknown error code (0x8889000A)
When I'm already playing music in Foobar, nothing plays in programs native to Linux. In Noise (Linux music player) It says it's playing music, but the progress bar doesn't move. If I'm playing a YouTube video in Chromium, It shows a still image, but there's no sound and the progress bar doesn't move.

This gets annoying because I translate audio to text while I listen to music, and nothing beats Foobar2k.

I reinstalled Foobar using the guide below (except for anything beyond part two), but I don't see a "Hardware Acceleration" menu anywhere in winecfg.

How can I get them both to play sound at the same time?

Either install and use Pulseaudio or configure Alsa to use the dmix plugin for mixing audio.

I re-installed pulseaudio and pulse-alsa, but I'm still having the same problem. Perhaps there is a way to set my Pulseaudio configs to default?

Also, adding

pcm.dsp {
type plug
slave.pcm "dmix"
to my /etc/asound.conf had no effect
