Fair enough. I just thought I'd mention it because when I upgraded to
kernel 2.6.x I started using alsa for the first time.
Everything looked as if it was working. XMMS would play and its spectrum
analyser would show the signal - yet no sound. I googled around and
found recommendations of using Gnome-alsamixer over alsamixer. I don't
use gnome either (I use icewm), but do use some gnome apps so I had the
gnome libs installed. I therefore gave it a try. What I found was,
although I had unmuted alsa using alsamixer, when I fire up
gnome-alsamixer it still showed it as muted. I then unmuted it with
gnome-alsamixer, and hey-presto I had sound.

Thats not to say this is your problem - it just looked familar.

Good luck
