You are trying to use the old OSS sound driver which is obsolete and no 
longer included in the distribution by default.

Just set up your pd to use ALSA or (if you started it) Jack.

Enter the sound setup and select alsa (trying to use /dev/dsp means that 
you are trying to use OSS - maybe the configuration file format changed 
and it defaults to OSS?).
