What version of alsa-lib do you have, and do you use the in-kernel
alsa drivers or the alsa-driver package? Which version?
Does anything change if you do "mplayer -ao alsa file.wav"?
The above "resource busy" error indicates that something is using the
legacy OSS interface. IIRC, older versions of alsa could not share
this interface, and in fact would prevent other applications from
using the sound card at all if something was using this interface.
Maybe try an "lsof /dev/dsp" to see what is using the old OSS interface...
