Default sound app issues

Hello. Recently some of my sound applications have stopped working
properly. I use Etch. This occurred after a recent upgrade. The two
apps that no longer work properly are volume.app, and xmms. vlc does
still give sound when I play either music or video files, as does the
Internet (using iceweasel). xmms states that it can't find the audio
device, and so does volume.app. I do have Openoffice.org installed
from debian-backports as well, though I'm assuming this wouldn't be the
cause. Any suggestions for fixing this are appreciated.

Mark

Check if you have /dev/dsp with the proper permissions:

$ ls -l /dev/dsp
crw-rw---- 1 root audio 14, 3 2008-11-06 19:41 /dev/dsp

If /dev/dsp is missing, try "modprobe snd_pcm_oss" as root. If that
improves the situation, add snd_pcm_oss to /etc/modules to have it
loaded automatically at boot time.

Thanks. Both volume.app and xmms now work.
