http://forums.opensuse.org – Hi. I've just switched to openSUSE and I've noticed that whenever I use firefox to watch a vid (for example in YT) I get the following message on aMsn when trying to record a sound: Quote: An error occured when trying to record the sound : Could not gain access to /dev/dsp for writing. So it seems that the audio device is being "locked" when an application uses it but I thought it was the sound server's job to avoid that. I believe there's a way to fix it since I didn't have that problem under Ubuntu but I just can't find a solution. Thanks guys:) (Distributions)
