Re: Sound Device Not Shared

if I stop the application which is using the sound device and then other application can use the sound device...
its more like exclusive access to the sound device by ALSA....

even if there is a warning sound from Anti-virus program, sound device get locked and I can not play music anymore until
I close Anti-virus program.

If I understand ALSA correctly, you should not be using /dev/anything.  ALSA
specifies devices differently, e.g. "hw:0,0" for card 0, device 0.  If your
app is wanting to use /dev/dsp, it may not be set up to use ALSA.  Either
configure it to use ALSA instead of OSS, or run the program with an ALSA
wrapper, like aoss (man aoss for help).
