faking /dev/dsp?


Hi,
I want to use xoscope, an ociliscope program that analyses sound from /dev/dsp but i dont have a sound card on the machine. is there a way i can fake /dev/dsp from some media player program (ie a mp3/wav player program)?

Any help would be great. thanks
Tristan

you won't be able to do that. xoscope has to be able to interact with the sound dewvice, simply throwing an audio stream at it will not have even the slightest bit of success.

ok, well xoscope also supports sound from EsounD, can i use this as as a way to produce sound than can be fed into xoscope?
I downloaded it and tried to install it but it gave me some error when compiling so I havent tried to get around it until i know if it will actualy help my situation (i've tried reading the docs but they havent been much help).
So, will ESounD help me achieve what i want?

Thanks for you help
Tristan
