Post Totem not playing multimedia files

Hi guys,

I've been having trouble playing multimedia files with totem. When I launch it, it yields the error message

Totem could not startup.
Device "/dev/dsp" does not exist.

and then quits. Sound server claims it has no gstreamer installed. I'm running on solaris 11 x86, on XFree86.

Any assistance will be appreciated.
