If you have firefox running the flash plugin might have grabbed your
soundcard; try closing firefox.  Other programs might have also
grabbed it like esd or arts as well, so you might want to try a
killall on them to see if that helps.  You can also do a 'fuser
/dev/snd/*' to see what PID's are  using the device at the time and
then kill them off.

Hope this helps.
