I've solved my problem, I just wanted to let other people know who might come across the same issue, because I couldn't find anything when I googled the error message.

If you're running SheepShaver from linux (where OSS is now replaced with pulseaudio) and you get a dialog box saying "Sheepshaver warning: No audio device found, audio output will be disabled" and in stderr it says:

WARNING: Cannot open /dev/dsp (Input/output error)
WARNING: Cannot open ESD connection

then try running "padsp SheepShaver" instead. I'm wondering if this should be part of the instructions for using SheepShaver on linux, because from what I've read, pulseaudio is pretty standard nowadays so although /dev/dsp exists, it won't work without the padsp wrapper.

Yes; good suggestion. PulseAudio is indeed the default on most major distros (followed by ALSA), so documenting that would be a good idea.
