no sound anymore


Hello,
Code:
uname -a
Linux littleindian 2.6.25-gentoo-r8 #1 SMP Sun Oct 5 12:51:06 CEST 2008 i686
Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.40GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux
Sound used to perfectly work out of all softwares providing it (amarok, vlc,
firefox...), untill...
Symptoms :
when amarok is fired, pop up window saying "XINE was unable to initialize any
audio-drivers".
no sound comes out anymore from vlc , Quake3, or firefox, when on youtube for
example . Video's fine thought.
when sounds tests are played with gnome sound manager: "audiotestsrc wave=sine
freq=512 ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! gconfaudiosink: Internal GStreamer
error: state change failed. Please file a bug at
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=GStreamer" when Alsa is chosen.
BUT, when OSS is chosen, I get the "beep" that means fine.
What I've checked so far:
Alsaconf had no issue dealing with my sound card. Alsamixer works fine.
Re-emerged media-libs/xine-lib, sys-apps/xinetd, x11-libs/libXinerama,
x11-proto/xineramaproto, gstreamer,gst-* plugins with no positive result.

What I've been doing before I notice this issue:
install nvidia drivers for graphic card 6600 GT
install Quake3
upgrade kernel
--All this went fine, and I'm positive, sound was working, since I played Q3
with it.--
run "emerge -pv --update --newuse --deep world" --> 40 components had to be
recompiled.
install PlayOnLinux.
Any idea ? Thanx

just a few things that may or may not help....

1. make sure no other application is hung in the background tying up the soundcard (ie: apps that utilize the sound card) "htop" works great for this.
2. make sure the speakers are on and hooked up right.
3. as root run ldconfig
4. have you rebooted yet? (new kernel ... needs reboot)
5. run lsmod on a terminal to see if the module for your sound card is loaded. (or if your distro has a pretty utility to do this use that) but make sure youve rebooted since the new kernel install or you may not get accurate results


after you have tried those things...write back

1.
Code:
top | grep alsa*
doesn't return anything
2. sure they are
3. ldconfig .... run as root, nothing special happened
4.I did reboot a bunch of time since the issue occurred, just using that box everyday
5.lsmod outup is shown in previous thread above.

I did filled a bug report right here : http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=555902.

This issue is still hanging, and I'm just getting desperate...
