ATIIXP/AC'97 Sound Card Driver problem?


Hello,
In my laptop, I'm using a ATIIXP sound card, with an AC'97 chip. I usually experience problems with sound, such as sound only working sometimes on boot up, and others not. A new problem arose the other day, sound won't work at all, usually I can start an app like mocp, and I press play, and just won't hear anything. But this time, It won't start due to errors, I'll post that output at the end of this post. I know the hardware is not borked, since I can hear a terminal beep (From TTY1..), which goes through the sound card (there is no sys. speaker). I've read about the noacpi or something to add to /boot/grub/menu.lst, but this doesn't work for me. Any idea? THanks.

PS: Please move this to correct forum if nessacary.

Code:
admin@UBUNTUboxx:~$ mocp
