[sndtools] sndpeek on linux

i'd be happy if someone could help setting up sndpeek.
i want it to read from a fifo, createt by mpd (music player daemon).
i can access the fifo with e.g.
$ aplay -f cd /tmp/mpd.fifo
but sndpeek just throws a non-descript error:
$ sndpeek /tmp/mpd.fifo
[sndpeek]: opening /tmp/mpd.fifo...
[sndpeek]: error: cannot open '/tmp/mpd.fifo'...
[sndpeek]: exiting...
code 253

any ideas?

thanks in advance,
