Are you running KDE as your desktop? If so, it takes control of the
/dev/dsp device and handles all sound I/O through a daemon.
If this is the case, you need to start the KDE control center app
(usually in the Kmenu, simply named 'Control Center'), the second to
last item in the left pane is 'Sound and Multimedia', open this and
select the item 'Sound System'.
You may choose to turn it off completely (no KDE sound works) but all
non-KDE apps will now run without issues), or to auto-suspend if idle
for some time period.
I think that there may be a similar issue with the Gnome desktop.
From the Etch main menu in the top panel:
Desktop -> Preferences -> Sound
In the Sound Preferences window choose the "Sounds" tab and disable "Enable
software sound mixing (ESD)"
No Gnome system sounds now work, but Gnome will not interfere with sound in apps.
