Unhappy kde2 soundserver won't start


I've searched as many config files as I can stand. The start arts soundserver on startup option in the kde control center is checked. I've tried logging out then back in, as well as re-booting. Tried to manually start by doing $ artsd
This gives as follows:

Error while initializing the sound driver:
device /dev/dsp can't be opened (no such device)

I have several devices labeled dsp in my /dev directory (dsp0, dsp1, dsp2 ....).
I am using SuSE 7.1 Pro, with default installation.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

well, you're likely to get away with creating a symlink to the correct dspX device to /dev/dsp. it's not guarenteed, but that's worked for me a fair few times with framebuffers and tv cards
