Sound server could not start after apt-get upgrade
 
Hi all folks,

RH 8.0
======
Before running apt-get upgrade the sound server was working properly,
using "alsa-driver-0.9.0rc6"

After upgrade with "apt-get upgrade" the sound server died. On login
following warning popup

>>>
Xinformational - artsmessage

Sound server informational message:
Error while initializing the sound driver:
device /dev/dsp can't be opened (No such device)
The sound server will continue, using the null output device.
<<<

There are 2 alsa-drivers installed on my system.

# rpm -qa|grep alsa
balsa-1.2.4-8
alsa-driver-0.9.4-fr0.rh80.2
alsa-utils-0.9.4-fr0.rh80.1
alsa-lib-0.9.4-fr0.rh80.1

# locate alsa

# locate snddevices
/usr/src/alsa/alsa-driver-0.9.0rc6/snddevices.in
/usr/src/alsa/alsa-driver-0.9.0rc6/snddevices

# ls -l /dev/snd
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 16 Jul 15 15:27 /dev/snd ->
/proc/asound/dev

It is a symbolic link

# cd /proc/asound/
bash: cd: /proc/asound/: No such file or directory

# ls -l /proc/asound/dev
ls: /proc/asound/dev: No such file or directory

Kindly advise how fix this problem. Thanks in advance.

B.Regards
