is a link to a web page that will tell you how to gain the resource
back, but not how to remedy the problem in general.

The solution is to setup dmix and in such a way that it's the default
sound output device.

Once again: when more then one sound sourece wants to output a signal
something needs to multiplex the signals so that they can be output in
(seemingly) parallel. Some sound chips can do it in hardware, others
need a software multiplexer. For ALSA, dmix is such a multiplexer.
