Sound Error FC2 2.6.5 error msg inside

Ok just to clear a few things,
The test sounds works, all the games i'v isntalled work, Winex3 and straight linux games all seem to get the sound working well.
Music CD players and stuff like that (xmms), stuff that runs in x-server (the GUI i mean) just dosent work at all.

I'm running linux on a Tecra M2 Toshiba laptop, Fedora Core 2 2.6.5 kernel
KDE version is:
Qt: 3.3.2
KDE: 3.2.2-6 Red Hat
Kdesktop: 3.2.2-6 Red Hat

According to my hardware pdf on my notebook, im using the
ADI AD1982B AC'97 Software Sound
when using the alsamixer command, the info i get is:
Card: Intel 82801DB-ICH4
Chip: Analog Devices AD1981B, Silicon Laboratory Si3036/8 rev 7
Item: Master
iv also used the aumix to turn up all sounds, and still cant get any sound out of xmms and cd play, any programs that run in X, including stuff like my vmware partitions, but games work perfectly, aside from deusex, sound runs really soft
i get this error msg on startup
sound error device message

error while initilizing the sound driver

device /dev/dsp cant be opened no such device

the sound server will continue using the null output device

thats the error msg, any help would be appreciated,
