<p>&gt; I previously had a problem where the first firefox session <br>
&gt; would get sound, </p>
<p>OSS or ALSA?</p>

&gt; fairly sure this is redundant with base layout 2.<br>&gt; <br>&gt; I upgraded the kernel twice, from linux-2.6.36-gentoo-r5 where I<br>&gt; initially had the problem,<br>&gt; to linux-2.6.36-gentoo-r8 and now on linux-2.6.38-gentoo-r6 paying<br>
&gt; careful attention to all the sound related configuration options. This<br>&gt; had no effect.<br>&gt; <br>&gt; I&#39;ve run out of things to try, so I&#39;m asking the list.<br>&gt; <br>&gt; I previously had a problem where the first firefox session would get<br>
&gt; sound, but no subsequent application, including firefox would have<br>&gt; sound, in other words the first invocation of firefox would lock the<br>&gt; sound. I could live with that, this current problem is far more<br>
&gt; annoying.<br>&gt; <br></div>
