Re: No Sound after Experiment with KDE4

I had a perfectly working Debian Sid/KDE3 box.
Then I added experimental to my sources.list file and installed enough
KDE4 stuff to play with it for a day or so. If I recall correctly,
sound worked for the first few hours, but by the time I got tired of
KDE4, I noticed sound was no longer working.
I uninstalled all the KDE4 stuff, and reinstalled KDE3. Still no sound
(either in KDE, or Gnome, or Icewm, or via mplayer with no X/DE running).
I upgraded my kernel (from 2.6.22, I think, to 2.6.28-1-686. Still, no
I did a dist-upgrade. Still, no sound.
I uninstalled/tweaked/reinstalled stuff like linux-sound-base, any
alsa-related stuff, manually installed modules, etc. Still, no sound.
It LOOKS like everything is working:
westk@canuhold:~$ cat /proc/asound/cards
0 [I82801DBICH4 ]: ICH4 - Intel 82801DB-ICH4
Intel 82801DB-ICH4 with AD1981A at irq 17
and any players I fire up look like they're working (progress bars
move; video effects jiggle; etc). I've played with Kmix and alsamixer
to make sure all the channels are unmuted and volume up. Still, no sound.
I can boot off a year-old XUbuntu CD, and sound works fine.
I compared the modules loaded by Xubuntu and copied over some
/etc/modprobe.d files, and I'm still getting the same behavior:
everything looks like it works, but no audio is produced (it's like the
sound is muted, but it's not).
The one thing I noticed as different is that "cat /proc/asound/cards"
while under Xubuntu gave the second line (compare to that above) as:
Intel 82801DB-ICH4 with AD1981A at 0xffa10400, irq 21
But I still don't know where to go from here. Any suggestions?
