have lost sound output ubuntu 8.04 on compaq EvoN620c
i'm totally at a loss to understand why i have no sound o/p.
i have been trying to install drivers for my w200 wireless card
and along the way at some point lost sound.
when i try to open amarok for instance i get this error message,
error, could not launch application;
failed to execute child process /home/rob/.xine/config (permission denied). i am the only user and of course root. i reset everything to
default at boot. short of a complete reinstall i'm stuck.
