tried to stop & start some sound processes:

# /etc/init.d/timidity restart
Stopping TiMidity++ ALSA midi emulation....
Starting TiMidity++ ALSA midi emulation...ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:996:
(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave

# /etc/init.d/alsasound restart
Shutting down sound driver: ERROR: Module snd_hda_intel is in use
ERROR: Module snd_pcm is in use by snd_hda_intel
ERROR: Module snd_timer is in use by snd_pcm
ERROR: Module snd is in use by snd_hda_intel,snd_pcm,snd_timer
ALSA driver is already running.

so Module snd_hda_intel is in use, how do I restart/kill/re-enable it??
