Goto Menu > control center > Sound and multimedia > sound system. Click on the Hardware tab and unselect ESD and choose ALSA. Assuming alsa is installed and working correctly. Then try to run alsamixer from a conole, if it starts up in console unmute the first few tabs by hitting the letter m and hit esc.

damn, i still get a crash, for some weird reason, i do get to hear some sounds on kde, like the initial sound thing... EDS is running at the same time alsa is running. if i do 'ps -c ESD' i get PID TTY TIME CMD. so, is there a way to manually shut EDS down?

Do ps -e and find the process ID for ESD then do kill "ID number" like " kill 1027" but when you change it in KDE its supposed to swith over to alsa.

im starting to really hate KDE... arts is the application that keeps crashing, i got out of X and went to the console and played an mp3 with amp... it worked.

i can't seem to find ESD as a process, maybe because KDE hides it as a lot of the KDinit processes, all with the same name. im really thinking about another desktop environment, is gnome better?

Not really, Its just a preference thing. I cannot say that getting sound to work will be any easier in Gnome. Have you installed alsa and configured it?
