Can't simultaneously read/write from ossaudio dsp device

For an internet telephone application, I need to be able to read and
write data to and from /dev/dsp simultaneously. I wrote some code and
its not working. Anyone have any working code to do this? I am
assuming my card is full duplex, it is a built-in sound card on a new
dell 600m laptop, but I am not sure how to tell for sure. But I think
the problem is not so much my sound card, but that I am making some
fundamentally wrong assumption on the way to do this ;) Also I am
definitely a newbie when it comes to audio coding, so any corrections
or tips are welcome.

Here is some test code that is failing for me
--------------------------------------------------------

from twisted.interne t.task import LoopingCall
from twisted.interne t import reactor
import os, sys, wave, audioop

"""
While playing the contents of test1.wav, talk into the mic
and have the audio recorded into /tmp/out.wav
"""

def playnlisten_out ():
audio = wavin.readframe s(1024)
stereoaudio = audioop.tostere o(audio, 2, 1, 1)
dsp.write(stere oaudio)

def playnlisten_in( ):
audio = dsp.read(640)
wavout.write(au dio)

def both():
playnlisten_out ()
playnlisten_in( )

dsp = ossaudiodev.ope n('/dev/dsp', 'rw')

wavin = wave.open("test 1.wav", "r")
wavout = wave.open("/tmp/out.wav", "w")

both_loop = LoopingCall(bot h)
both_loop.start (0.02)

reactor.run()

------------ Actual behavior ------------------------

It fails with an error:

dsp.write(stere oaudio)
exceptions.IOEr ror: [Errno 19] No such device

If I comment either playnlisten_out () or playnlisten_in( ) then the
other function will work. They just don't work at the same time.

I got it working! There was another thread http://tinyurl.com/pebqc on
this group where someone had the same problem. I changed my code to
the following:

from twisted.interne t.task import LoopingCall
from twisted.interne t import reactor
import os, sys, wave, audioop

"""
While playing the contents of test1.wav, talk into the mic
and have the audio recorded into /tmp/out.wav
"""

def playnlisten_out ():
audio = wavin.readframe s(1024)
stereoaudio = audioop.tostere o(audio, 2, 1, 1)
dspout.write(st ereoaudio)

def playnlisten_in( ):
audio = dspin.read(640)
wavout.write(au dio)

def both():
playnlisten_out ()
playnlisten_in( )

dspout = ossaudiodev.ope n('/dev/dsp', 'w') # 2 file handles
dspin = ossaudiodev.ope n('/dev/dsp', 'r')

wavin = wave.open("test 1.wav", "r")
wavout = wave.open("/tmp/out.wav", "w")

both_loop = LoopingCall(bot h)
both_loop.start (0.02)

reactor.run()

and it worked as expected. I did not need to mess around with
/dev/mixer.
