"Couldn't open audio" message
Hi, sometimes i get this message when opening xmms to play mp3's. It usually happens when something else is trying to use sound i guees, like mozilla. How can i set up the sound system so that problem goes away? I am sure linux is capable of handling more than 2 apps using the sound right, sounds logical and obvious.

Try switching the sound driver output in XMMs.

So basically, all applications should have a different driver output so no conflicts arise. Now, how can i know which one works for my distro and xmms?
I'll google it, if i can't find anything, i'll ask. I don't really like to be handed everything out without researching a little bit.

I went into this site http://www.xmms.org/faq.php#Running5 and found out that i could do something:
XMMS works OK as root, but not as a user. You probably have the wrong permissions on the sound device. As root do this: chmod 622 /dev/dsp and chmod 666 /dev/mixer
