Audacity sound problems

I can play sound files in XMMS, noatun mplayer, etc. but Audacity 1.0.1 won't let me select /dev/dsp as the playback device. The preference dialog gives me an error message "Invalid playback device".

I have seen threads on this problem in the list archives of several sites but no one seems to have an answer.

Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

uname -a

cat /etc/debian_version

Here's some of my sound setup info:
