No, test sound does not work.
When I use an audio program like XMMS or Noatun both program work and
play audio files, but without sound output.
I tried to install the old ALSA sources (1.0.8) from Debian Sarge on
Etch, but I get a number of compiler errors. So this is also not an option.
At last I restarted my laptop and deactivated KDM before to avoid that
arts locks the sound system. When I use aplay or alsaplayer to play an
audio file I get no sound output too.
I think it is time to talk with the ALSA crew.
