When you (as root) ran alsamixer did you unmute all the channels by typing m for each channel? Also, are you getting any error messages, or is it just simply that you don't get any sound when you run Xmms or whatever?
I had the same problem, and the solution was that I had to disable IEC958 Capture Monitor from KMix (since I'm using KDE). Don't have a clue of why it blocked the sound but now I hear stuff through ALSA You just have to put it so that you can see all the options, I don't know what it is in the English KDE but I think something like 'more options'. Damnit, it took me two weeks to get the sounds working...
