I ahve installed a program that handles audio analysis as a spectrum or or spectogram display. The program is glfer and is in the repository. It appears to run but am unable to select my USB sound card for input. The program seems to require a device such as /dev/dsp to be be created. I have no idea as to how to do this. My USB sound card works perfectly using ALSA. Can anyone help please.
I found I can get /dev/dsp if I run (as root) 'modprobe snd_pcm_oss' and my applicatiions that require this device now work. However this is a temporary fix and lost on reboot. Where can I place this command to load the module automatically. I guess in one of the many rc scripts, but which?
