[root]# whereis nasd
nasd: /usr/bin/nasd /usr/share/man/man1/nasd.1x.gz
[root]# /usr/bin/nasd -aa -v -d 99
Network Audio System Release 1.9.1
Network Audio System Release 1.9.1
Init: will close device when finished with stream.
Init: will keep mixer device open.
Init: Leaving the mixer device options alone at startup.
Init: openDevice OUT /dev/dsp mode 1
Init: Output open(/dev/dsp) failed: No such file or directory

Fatal server error:
could not create audio connection block info

No dsp device!
Now how can that be?
Does nas create a virtual DSP device accessed through a port or do you 
have to have hardware installed  on the server?
