Alsa Problems with new Etch

Assembled Wisdom!

As mentioned here in a different thread, I pursued, perhaps
the goal of upgrading from sarge to etch, and have now for the most part
a successful etch system.  My biggest remaining problem is ALSA.  I believe
it to be successfully installed, since I used the same installation path
that I had done earlier with my sarge.  It seems to be installed but I
get no SOUND, although aplay <a .wav file> seems to be going through the
motions.  I have run alsamixer and bumped up the volume.  My apparatus
seems OK, since I get a honk from the speakers when booting.  (And, as
mentioned, my sound worked fine last week and before, when I was
using sarge)

Here is the result of my call to aplay -l :
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: rev50 [VIA 82C686A/B rev50], device 0: VIA 82C686A/B rev50 [VIA
82C686A/B rev50]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

alsa* and alsa-utils* are entries in my /etc/init.d/ , and I get no
sign of any error while booting.

I have made an entry in the also-project wiki.  Perhaps I did this wrong,
I'm not familiar with wikis.

Has etch had problems with ALSA?

I hope someone on this E-list can point me to a source of information
and possible help.

Best wishes,
