Not exactly sure, but it sounds like mplayer is still has the device open despit being puased. To fix this add something like this using sysctl... hw.snd.maxautovchans=4 hw.snd.pcm0.vchans=6 Just replace pcm0 with what ever your audio device is... this will allow multiple device to access it... You can also place it in /etc/sysctl.conf and it will take affect on every boot. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
