If I use
Music can be played but my player has a sort of monopoly on soundoutput. No other programm can play music or sounds. I also have some sound-artefacts in my songs. Short lags I think. Not much, but it is noticable and disturbing.
Then there is this way to set the output (as i am using alsa);
This used to work fine with ubuntu 6.10 (other programms can play sounds) but as I now have 7.04 it doesn’t work anymore. I have a progressbar always showing how much of the song has been played and when I play a song (with alsa-output) no sound is heard but the progressbar runs about twice as fast to the end of the song. Its like the sound is played in fastforward without sound. When i start my programm with sudo it works some time but it usually starts with this fast forward bug after some time.
What can I do to get my sound running correctly under linux?

The problem is with your kernel. You said yourself it used to work in an older version.
Linux doesnt have a good kernel mixing mode like windows, yes it will take over your soundcard unless you use ESD, or i think alsa that is compiled with certain flags to make it run through a mixer instead of straight to the hardware in exclusive mode. I’m not too sure about the details of that but you can probably find more info on the web.
