I am using artsd as sound server.
It requires that programs that will try to write directly to /dev/dsp,
be run with artsdsp.
To solve that problem I modified the mozilla shell script to add artsdsp.
Now it read like this: ( at the end of /usr/bin/mozilla)
exec artsdsp $MOZILLA $*
Then, restart mozilla.

I run across this problem a lot in Linux. Maybe someone can help me
make my Gentoo system do audio better. All the straight Alsa stuff works
well. However, when I'm browsing around I come to web sites that
probably want to play some audio, but this is Linux and Alsa, so things
don't work easily. At the web site
I start getting this repeating glitch noise every 8 seconds or so. It
hasn't happened every time I've visited the site today, but it's
happened a lot of times.
In hdspmixer I see this glitch on all 26 playback channels, by the
way, so I'm assuming that this means it's some sort of OSS problem, but
I'm not sure.
What's wrong with my setup of Alsa, which in most other ways works
just fine, and why can I also not get mp3 (well, really xmms) to work
BTW - much non-Alsa audio from Games works fine, but also drives all
26 playback channels. Should it really work this way?
