Question Realtek alc850 sound problems

Hi! My problem now is that PCM Sound is not working properly. i.e when i open live stream content in realplayer,everything seems ok,but no sound. System sounds are working,and playing MP3, and movies,no problem.(with other players,not with real) It seems not to be a realplayer issue, i tried to unistall/install,no change. Other applications using PCM are affected as well,when realplayer is not working,VICE c64 emulator is giving error message"Sound: initialization failed on device ´uss´.

I have tried all settings on alsa mixer,and player preferences,and in "cofigure desktop/sound"

My computer: P4 Gigabyte 8-IPE1000-ProG,512mb,Mandriva 2005LE,Soundsystem is integrated Realtek alc850(ac97). ALSA version 1.0.8 using intel 8x0 driver.

If i need to provide more detailed system info,please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Thumbs up Problem solved

I still dont know exactly what was the problem,but i did found the cure.In KDE desktop setting sound system section,there is that slider,where you can set the time when KDE is "giving up its exclusive control",i set that to 5 seconds, and problem disappeared.
