You may have been able to fix it by re-running alsaconf after you upgraded those packages

Peace,

Take a look at this thread:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=155857

You can fix it easily by doing cd /var/swaret and using installpkg to install the ALSA packages. (All three).

Edit: Forgot to mention after you install the ALSA packages; run alsamixer as a normal user then, as root, run alsactl store. Reboot.
