Sound with realplayer?
Hi, I'm running Slackware 9.1, and I just installed realplayer 8. Everything works find except that I can't get any audio. When I try starting it up, I get the error 'Cannot open the audio device. Another application may be using it'. I know my sound works; I can open up xmms and start playing music....... Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

You aren't trying to run two players at once are you? In other words, you're not trying to run XMMS and realplayer simultaneously? XMMS can't be playing or paused while running realplayer. It must be either not running or stopped.

No, I'm not running them both at the same time; I was just showing that as an example that my sound card is working.

The only thing I can think of is to run top and look for anything that could be using the dsp device.
