Using ALSA by default, although I suspect java or firefox is using OSS
hence playing around the the OSS emulation.
I meant to include this
# lspci | grep Audio
00:14.2 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA)
01:00.1 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc HD48x0 audio
I've tried selecting both devices in alsaconf. Same symtoms for both.

I installed pulseaudio, added the pulseaudio use flag, and rebuild
I went thru <http://pulseaudio.org/wiki/PerfectSetup> logged out & in from kde,
and got no sound at all.
Rebooted and still no sound, in any application.
If I mplayer -ao pulse, it opens the sound okay, but no sound is audible
if I mplayer -ao alsa it can't find the library, I think thats because
of the rebuild
with pulseaudio use flag.
There is no /dev/dsp device (which is the oss compatibility device).
pavucontrol runs, but doesn't see any sound devices.
suggests doing a "fuser /dev/snd/*" and kill off any process listed.
I have nothing listed here. Before rebooting there were a few KDE
things, eg. knotify
This also suggests killing the daemon and doing "pulseaudio -vvvv"

The problem is I now have 3 pulseaudio daemons, which keep starting,
so the PIDs keep changing. I'm about to reboot again to get rid of them.
