Hi, I'm looking for a possibility to get the Z to play 2 sounds at the same time.

Example : "listening to music -> incoming icq message" -> the icq app tells me 'can't open /dev/dsp

I guess the xmms does add a write protection to /dev/dsp while using it.

-->I need some kind of sound server or workaround for this, so that it works like in kde.

Its actually the kernel that stops processes from sharing devices.

The way to fix this is to run a soundserver like esd, or to use ALSA with the dmix device.
