I ran sndconfig and now I DO get some sounds, just the system sounds though. My computer now plays midi's, wav's, and a couple other sound files but not mp3's. I downloaded a couple mp3's and tried listening to them using an old version of xmms but it didn't play. I turned all my system volume settings up as high as they would possibly go but still, xmms wouldn't produce any noise at all. Then a buddy signed onto gaim and damn near blew my speakers out, so I turned the volume back down. I tried playing my Busta Rhymes CD but CD PLAYER wouldn't make sound either. So just system sounds for now, which is an improvement from an hour ago so I'm doing all-right so far ...
