Audio not working[solved]


I got RHEL5 workstation that doesn't have sound anymore for some reason.

Code:
lspci | grep Audio
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 01)
Code:
lsmod

As shown above the sound modules are loaded. I checked with alsamixer that the channels are unmuted and they have volume.

In Amarok it complains that there's no playback engine and preferences option for playback engine just list 'no engine'. This would be the problem I think but as far as I can tell xine-lib's and gstreamer are installed so what could be the problem with this computer?

Code:
yum list installed | grep xine
gxine.i686                               0.4.1-1                installed
xine-lib.i686                            1.1.2-2                installed
xinetd.i386                              2:2.3.14-10.el5        installed
Code:
yum list installed | grep gstreamer
gstreamer.i386                           0.10.9-3.el5           installed
gstreamer-plugins-base.i386              0.10.9-6.el5           installed
gstreamer-plugins-good.i386              0.10.4-2.el5           installed
gstreamer-tools.i386                     0.10.9-3.el5           installed
Solved: Appearantly one of our company's Linux program stole the audio from other programs for some reason

Question

Is this a new install? Or did it just stop working?

Can you please post the output from aplay -l ?
