I'm using alsa after ditching pulseaudio from my KDE installation. Alsa has always been reliable. However, I suffer from the inability to have two audio streams play at the same time. If I'm watching a movie, and the system gives a notification beep (like download complete or something), sound stops from smplayer or whatever else is playing audio and I have to close the player and reopen it again. This is ridiculous, to say the least.
Is this a known issue? Is there a fix? Happens in any WM/DE. Rig in sig.
