[mythtv-users] /dev/adsp not found after Gentoo update

After I did a Gentoo update (emerge world) mythtv (live tv) was reporting that /dev/adsp was "device not found".  /dev/adsp was new to me - I thought I had configured mythtv to use /dev/dsp for all my capture cards (hd-2000 and pvr-250).

I messed around for some time this weekend trying to work it out - and in a sign of desperation I removed the /dev/adsp link and re-created it to point to the /dev/dsp device.

This is a terrible hack I believe and was wondering what I could do to correct this.

The sound is now working again but I'm not happy with what I did.

Any ideas?
