Using RealPlayer 10 and it won't output sound anymore, just video, when trying *.ram feeds from websites.

Is the audio device in use? Try 'aumix -W90; killall esd artsd' and then
try again. Also try 'fuser /dev/dsp /dev/audio /dev/mixer', that should
output nothing. What are the permissions/owner/group on those devices?


adam@gondor:~$ ls -la /dev/dsp
crw-rw----  1 root audio 14, 3 2005-11-28 19:35 /dev/dsp
adam@gondor:~$ ls -la /dev/audio
ls: /dev/audio: No such file or directory
adam@gondor:~$ ls -la /dev/mixer
crw-rw----  1 root audio 14, 0 2005-11-28 19:35 /dev/mixer

I've been there and done that. There's no firefox mplayer extension though, is there?

I could really appreciate it someone could chime in with a big hint about my situation above.
