please use the automatic installer (install.pl) it will do it all for you

if not using automatic installer, do something similar to:

#Unload possible ALSA sound modules that would conflict with our OSS fake
rmmod snd_pcm_oss
rmmod snd_mixer_oss
rmmod snd_seq_oss
sleep 1
#Create the inode our fake sound driver will use
mknod /dev/dsp c 14 3
#Load our OSS fake module
insmod /usr/local/freeswitch/skypopen/skypopen-sound-driver-dir/skypopen.ko

this will work

Explanation is: your alsa installation creates automatically /dev/dsp for
compatibility with OSS, but you do not need it, if you are using ALSA. (You
would need it to use alsa from OSS application, but this is not what you
