/dev/sound/adsp is not an OSS device.

Don't confuse using native ALSA and using ALSA with OSS emulation. If
you are using ALSA with OSS emulation, then the /dev/sound/dsp device is
created and managed by the ALSA OSS compatibility layer. /dev/sound/adsp
is only there for native ALSA, which you can not use with GnomeMeeting
0.98.5 (native ALSA support is only working with CVS).

It is there for compatibility with OSS applications. The mixer to use is
the first one. (/dev/mixer most probably)
