This is not a gmfsk problem. This simply means that some other program
has the soundcard locked, and gmfsk is unable to access it. You need to
find out what program is using the soundcard. For example, I have to
shut down Skype before I can run gmfsk.

Yes, it can.  However, Skype uses an older sound system that doesn't.
It hogs the sound system to itself.  Most of the time, if all the
programs use ALSA, they can each produce sound concurrently.

If you're using kde, you can try to run skype with artsdsp. If it works, skype will use arts instead of trying to access /dev/dsp directly.

I am running kde, and both ekiga and skype suffer from some sort of feedback problem on my end.

Can you explain how skype is forced into the artsdsp usage camp?
