/dev/dsp is for OSS sound, while your Debian installation will be using
ALSA by default. Look for /proc/asound as evidence; /proc/asound/cards
should list detected sound cards.

If you need OSS emulation, load the module snd-pcm-oss. udev will then
create /dev/dsp and /dev/audio. I don't know the official way to have
snd-pcm-oss loaded automatically.
