WSPR on Softrock with Linux

My setup on openSUSE 11.3 is Softrock v6.3 + Mobo.
Card 0 is Mic/Speakers (set as Audio out /dev/dsp in WSPR 2.01)
Card 1 is I-Q (set as Audio In /dev/dsp1 in WSPR 2.01)
I see nothing on the waterfall and hear nothing in the speakers, nothing is decoded, stating the obvious.
RX Noise is always -30 dB.
I have tried other card settings. The LO is set to 7.0386000 and offset is 600 Hz.
Other software quisk, sdr-shell-rxtx, xlinrad64 and lysdr all run fine.
I think I noticed the same on the Kubuntu 10.04 box, but will check that again later.
# fuser -v /dev/snd/*
USER PID ACCESS COMMAND
/dev/snd/controlC0: lancelot 6482 F.... kmix
lancelot 6663 F.... pulseaudio
/dev/snd/controlC1: lancelot 6482 F.... kmix
lancelot 6663 F.... pulseaudio

I got the following with one audio setting.
# fuser -v /dev/snd/*
USER PID ACCESS COMMAND
/dev/snd/controlC0: lancelot 6482 F.... kmix
lancelot 6663 F.... pulseaudio
/dev/snd/controlC1: lancelot 6482 F.... kmix
lancelot 6663 F.... pulseaudio
/dev/snd/pcmC1D2c: root 8827 F...m python

Time is definitely in synch.
Any experience with Softrock and WSPR on Linux?
