January 22nd, 2009, 05:15 PM
Hi all, i have a problem with my ubuntu 8.04. I have an hp pavillion dv6000 notebook. When i open a program that uses my audio card, any other program that is opened after does not play any music at all, it appears that the audio server is occupied by the first program. For example if i listen to an audio sample on internet and then i want to listen to lastfm while playing the sample it says that the audio server is occupied. In particular it says: The ALSA audio system is occupied
How can i solve this issue?
Thanks a lot
