i've installed mandrake 9.1 recently. my audio chip is SiS 7012. it recognizes it. but at the start boot time a meesage comes "error in initialiazing or opening port /dev/dsp". what does it mean. i don't know.
also I don't find any file or directory named /dev/dsp in my system. i think it is necessary, then how can I create it?
after then i play an mp3 file on XMMS it shows all the graphics and behaves normal. it seems it is playing the song normally, but no sound is there. please help me. thanks.

/dev/dsp problem

i've try for mknod command but it won't work. saying that arguments are not full. so i saw man pages then got the syntax
mknod /dev/dsp 14 3 c|b|p|u
where c-cgahracter device
b-block device
i got confused and give 'c' it won't work. then i deleted the /dev/dsp file. then tried to recreate it, but this time it won't create and told the major device is already used.
what will i do now?

probeall scsi_hostadapter ide-scsi
probeall usb-interface usb-ohci
above snd-intel8x0 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-slot-0 ali5455
