I'd do a "ps ax" and look for any sound-looking processes running them

Three days ago I had a working xmms installation,
last night i wanted to listen to some music mp3's on a cd
and poof no sound, no error message pop-ups (is there a log I
can check?), nothing. the song i selected went into the playlist
but after that nothing happened. This is odd because i haven't
used the system since the last time i was playing cd's three days ago.
system info - partial
P100 32Mb RAM
tdfx video 16Mb RAM
its cool to cc: me directly
Any help or pointers will be greatly appreciated.
You might try exiting out of X and killing any X-related processes (kdm,
gdm, xprint, artsd, xinit, etc) if there are still any running, and then
restarting X and trying xmms again.
You might try a console-based mp3 player, or another X-based one; you
might want to try it as a different user.
