Trouble with stepmania and alsa.

Hi, I tried to install stepmania from the pkgbuilds in the aur, pbut everytime I run it (doesn't matters if it's the stable release or cvs, I tried with both) it has this error with alsa:

ALSA: Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Driver Version 1.0.11rc4 (Wed Mar 22 10: 27:24 2006 UTC).
ALSA Driver: 0: VIA 8233A [V8233A], device 0: VIA 8233A [VIA 8233A], 0/1 subdevi ces avail
ALSA Driver: 0: VIA 8233A [V8233A], device 1: VIA 8233A [VIA 8233A], 1/1 subdevi ces avail
Couldn't load driver ALSA: dsnd_pcm_open(hw:0): Device or resource busy
Couldn't load driver ALSA-sw: dsnd_pcm_open(hw:0): Device or resource busy
Couldn't load driver OSS: RageSound_OSS: Couldn't open /dev/dsp: Device or resou rce busy
Sound driver: Null

The 'funniest' part of it all is that all the programs are using alsa and working fine, even flashplayer can use alsa with mixing and everything. I stfw, but I didn't find anything on how to fix it, it has happened to more people though, and one of them said he fixed it, but didn't say how sad
please help me (if something doesn't make sense, it's because I'm tired and my back aches)

Re: Trouble with stepmania and alsa.

try maniadrive thats not a bad game either..

but the reason you get the error is cause some other program is using the device
so i dunno make sure nothing is usuing /dev/dsp when you run the game
