It might also be some other process that's blocking the sound device,
like artsd or esound. You might find out if that's the case with
"fuser /dev/dsp" and check with "ps THE_NUMBER_FUSER_GAVE" what
process this is. 

In any case, you should first test if sound works at all using "aplay"
and "arecord", then work up from this (assuming you use ALSA, which
you should do).
