No Audio for Linux Flash Player 7 - Macromedia Flash Player

Hi all, I have just downloaded and installed the Linux Flash Player and I've run into a slight hitch. The player tries to use /dev/dsp for all audio output... which isn't created when using the ALSA drivers which are the default drivers for a 2.6.x series kernel. Any thoughts?...

    Default No Audio for Linux Flash Player 7

    Hi all,

    I have just downloaded and installed the Linux Flash Player and I've run into
    a slight hitch. The player tries to use /dev/dsp for all audio output... which
    isn't created when using the ALSA drivers which are the default drivers for a
    2.6.x series kernel.

    Any thoughts?

    Install your distro's alsa-oss package. This supplies a wrapper script that sorts out the sound devices.
    For example you would run Firefox as :
    aoss firefox &
