The reason is that Flash and xmms both use old OSS for sound, which
allows only one app to access the soundcard at a time. Configure your
XMMS to use alsa and start firefox inside an aoss-environment with the
command "aoss firefox" instead of plain "firefox".

And bug the authors of every app that is still using OSS as default on linux...

Wenn man mit Raubkopien Bands wie Brosis oder Britney Spears wirklich
verhindern könnte, würde ich mir noch heute einen Stapel Brenner und
einen Sack Rohlinge kaufen.
