I just got my new system up and running last week and was installing more applications and such the other day. I installed mplayer and tested out a movie I had on my hard drive -- success! Sound and all worked (I had already adjusted my mixer levels in alsamixer). Well, fast forward to installing mpd and sonata. Sound isn't working for these... so I launch mplayer, and sound doesn't work here anymore, either! I'm not sure what the next step is. I've double checked mixer levels and that the proper module is loaded (snd_hda_intel), but nothing is remedying the situation.

What should I do next?

I'd check to make sure that your sound card is selected in gnome-sound-properties (if you have gnome installed). I had no sound after a recent update and all my modules were loaded and mixer was turned up but still no sound so I selected my card in gnome-sound-properties and my sound was back.

I'm not using gnome nor kde (awesomewm :)) nor any sound daemons (esd, arts, etc.) Just pure alsa. I had considered setting up pulseaudio to see if that remedied my situation but I don't think it will.

Wait a second:
Code:

yosprey-phenom ~ # eselect esd show
Current ESounD implementation:
  pulseaudio               
yosprey-phenom ~ # eselect esd update
yosprey-phenom ~ # eselect esd show
Current ESounD implementation:
  esound-esd               


esd is not running, but could this still be interfering? Will setting up pulseaudio aid me? Or is it futile when simple alsa is failing to work?

[Update]
Removed esound, blah blah blah.
Tried a simple
Code:
cat /dev/urandom > /dev/dsp
and got nothing!

RESOLVED!

Played around with alsamixer. Found a few extra entries and... front audio was muted. Everything is good now.
