Re: No Sound after Experiment with KDE4

I had same problem (working sound in KDE3 and not working sound in
KDE4), but unfortunately I'm not really sure what actually fixed my

thought it might help (i.e. has alsa in the package name)
One of the last thing I remember is installing gstreamer-alsa package.
Not sure why, but it was not installed.
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'm unsure where to go from here. Any suggestions?
