    Hi guys,

    I a linux newbie. However I've been successfully able to install MPD and an Soundblaster Extigy on my Linksys NSLU2 running OpenSlug. However the set up does not work yet, because madplay won't find my sound card.
    When I use aplay I am able to play wave files over my sound card. And in the mpd.conf file I put ao_driver "oss" and ao_driver_options "dev=default", which was enough to get MPD running. And after that I was able to connect to MPD with a client from my laptop. However to play mp3's I needed to install madplay. And when I now try to play a mp3 with madplay I get this error:
    audio: /dev/dsp: No such file or directory

    And indeed, it does not exist. But do I find out what the correct link to my sound card is. There must my something since aplay can use it.
    Hopefully you guys can help me out. Thanks a lot!
