Hey all,

Just got Gentoo GNU/Linux (www.gentoo.org) up and running on one of my 
machines. Gentoo has now /dev/dsp, but it does have /dev/dspW, which is an 
alternate dsp device, I'm led to understand. How do I get pd to use this 
instead of /dev/dsp? When I start up pd, I get:

/dev/dsp (read/write): No such file or directory
(now will try write-only...)
/dev/dsp (writeonly): No such file or directory
/dev/dsp (readonly): Now such file or directory

Where do I get pd to use /dev/dspW instead of /dev/dsp?
