Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. enable gnome sound-events
2. try to play sound with rhythmbox --> error
3. use mplayer, xine, ... --> no problems
you are not able to play sound with rhythmbox but with other players
rhythmbox should play the sound
disable the sound-events and rhythmbox is able to play sound

Seen the same problem when using KDE. It then pops up six messages
stating that /dev/dsp is in use. A quick lsof | grep dsp reveals that
it is artsd who occupies the. When I kill artsd, I am naturally able
to play music with rythmbox.
But this problem will go away anyway by itself in Fedora Core 2, as it
it has a 2.6 series kernel => ALSA which has multiple-stream support,
For all of you: What is the output of:
gconftool-2 -g /system/gstreamer/0.8/default/audiosink
Be sure it's "alsasink".
Once that works, we need bug #130593 to be fixed.
i had a harddisk-crash a few month agoo.
