Re: No sound after installing KDE...

To me, it sound like you're trying to play some audio file from within KDE 
using some direct interface like /dev/dsp or /dev/dsp0. However, by default, 
KDE enables artsd, which locks the sound card. Try `artsplay <soundfile>'?

I could be wrong, but this was my first thought.

Regars, Anders.
