sound card working;now not working


yesterday my soundcard worked perfectly
im using vector linux
i could listen to the radio just fine
now i booted and i find out that xmms
tells me something new

Couldnt open audio
Please check that:
Your soundcard is configured properly
You have the correct output plugin selected
No other program is blocking the soundcard

Now so that you guys dont think i didnt research
the problem just a little bit well i did
i got on irc on efnet i talked with some rookies
found out that lsof is a goot tool for finding
wich programs use wich devices
so i downloaded built this lsof thing
and made lsof /dev/dsp
lsof /dev/audio
i did not get anything
im starting to think this linux is a bad joke...sometimes
sometimes...it works normally...

i put some commands output maybe this might help

Code:
[root@vector/dev/snd]# aplay  
ALSA lib confmisc.c:560:(snd_determine_driver) could not open control for card 0
ALSA lib conf.c:2686:(snd_config_hooks_call) function snd_config_hook_load_for_all_cards returned error: No such file or directory
ALSA lib pcm.c:1959:(snd_pcm_open_conf) Invalid type for PCM default definition (id: default, value: cards.pcm.default)
aplay: main:533: audio open error: Invalid argument
[root@vector/dev/snd]# aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
aplay: device_list:226: control open (0): No such file or directory
[root@vector/dev/snd]#


it may probably seem to you strange that i am posting
too many posts in so short time.
the fact is im just using linux there is nothing else
i am doing and i want some satisfaction from it.
