    You probably need to configure your applications to use Alsa output because this enables input/output from multiple sources.

    Your multimedia applications as well as your desktop environment if you are using KDE or GNOME. What environment are you using?

    I've done a bit of research on this and the results from google say that you should install a package called libesd-alsa0 in order to resolve your problem.
