Do you have the Alsa apps such as aplay, arecord, amixer, etc.,
installed? If so, type "aplay -l" and see if any soundcards are found.
This is what I get:
[mcallman at prez doc]$ aplay -l
aplay: device_list:205: no soundcards found...
I also lost the sound output, although not all. I can play a ".au" file
directly to the /dev/audio device (cat file.au > /dev/audio) and I hear
it. I'm working on finding the solution. I've posted about it here but
haven't had any luck. It's something with the "pcm" devices (whatever
they are), I think. I've never fiddled with anything audio before so
it's all new to me.
