Thanks for the solution!
I wasn't using gdm as it still gives me the "Oh no! Something has gone
wrong" screen, but at some point it didn't even show the login screen -
probably due to missing packages. So I gave up using gdm, but could not
imagine that its usage would be related to the problems I had. Now I
have sound and video running smooth.
