Multiple sounds with ALSA
I've had this annoyance for quite some time now, and I think it's time I solved it.
When I try to play multiple sounds on my system, it doesn't work. For example, if I'm running XMMS, and I wanted to play something with MPlayer for some reason, I'd start it up, and MPlayer would inform me that the audio device /dev/dsp was busy. This problem is minor; such occasions are few and far between. However, it comes in handy with IM alarms and other such things. So, I guess my question is...how can I configure ALSA to allow multiple programs access to /dev/dsp?
Thanks in advance for any and all help you can offer!
