    Failed to open sound device /dev/dsp openSUSE

    dbrich Novice


      Hi, I have vmware 6.5.3 running on openSUSE 11.1. (host). Everything seems to run fine, but if some other application - in my case it is Skype (I believe) uses sound device, the vmware disconects the sound device from my virtual machine (guest is Windows 2003 server) and if I try to connect it by hand I am getting the error message:



      "Failed to open sound device /dev/dsp: Device or resource busy Failed to connect virtual device sound."



      Is there any way to set it up that I can use the sound device from more applications simultanously?



      Btw, the sound is uisng alsa, I had to remove Pulse as there are troubles with it in Skype.



      Thanks for advice
