When starting gedit from the command line, I get the following error:

/dev/dsp: No such device

It certainly exists:

$ ls -l /dev/dsp
crw-rw----    1 root     audio     14,   3 2005-03-23 13:05 /dev/dsp

And what would a sound device have to do with gedit?

whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism
or the holy name of liberty or democracy?  -  Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948)
