Is it possible to run pulseaudio and direct alsa playback at the same
time? `mplayer -ao alsa' and `mplayer -ao pulse' both work fine for me
when run one after another, but while `mplayer -ao pulse t.mp3' is
running, `mplater -ao alsa t.mp3' fails to start, I get Device or
resource busy. Is there a configuration option that lets these work
together? alsa dmix works fine for me: two instances of `mplayer -ao
alsa' work cuncurrently.
