The Linux port (s_linux.c) doesn't correctly support full-duplex, I
think. There's an ioctl you need to use first to enable it.

Since full-duplex isn't working, what happens is that the card gets
opened for output using /dev/dsp, then PD looks for an input card at
/dev/dsp1. Something like that. I can send you my version of s_linux.c
if you want, but I never tried to get the full duplex working myself.

0.21 is available for Linux?
