Audio not working

Morning all, having an issue with what seems to be 'dbus' which I am not familiar with.
System-Preferences-Harware-Sound shows the soundplayback as AutoDetect with the drop down options of;
All 3 when selected and Test is hit produce;
audiotestsrc wave=sine freq=512 ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! gconfaudiosinkL Internal GStreamer error: state change failed.

If I start an audio app such as banshee, I get a popup message stating;
DBus is not available
Your environment is not setup properly to use DBus.

A running check shows the following running;

ps -fax |grep dbus
/bin/bash -c "/usr/bin/dbus-launch --exit-with-session gnome-session"
24493 pts/2 S+ 0:00 | \_ grep dbus
2491 ? S 0:00 /usr/bin/dbus-launch --exit-with-session gnome-session
2492 ? Ss 0:02 /bin/dbus-daemon --fork --print-pid 4 --print-address 8 --session
23475 ? Ss 0:00 /usr/local/bin/dbus-daemon --fork --print-pid 4 --print-address 6 --session
23481 ? Ss 0:00 /usr/local/bin/dbus-daemon --fork --print-pid 4 --print-address 6 --session
23499 ? Ss 0:00 /usr/local/bin/dbus-daemon --fork --print-pid 4 --print-address 6 --session
24425 ? Ss 0:00 /usr/local/bin/dbus-daemon --fork --print-pid 4 --print-address 6 --session
24430 ? Ss 0:00 /usr/local/bin/dbus-daemon --fork --print-pid 4 --print-address 6 --session

So it looks like dbus is running (whatever that really tells me I don't know) but any help is appreciated.

It's a Dell XPS/Dimension 210/9200C.
Looks like it uses the STAC 92XX C-Major HD Audio device.
and lspci shows;
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 02)

upgrade didnt work, so i downgrade

this fixed the issue on fedora 8 for me. adjust dependencies as neccsary, but the fedora 7 rpms work great for me. replace hxxp with http.

sudo rpm -ivh --force \
hxxp:// \ 
hxxp:// \ 
hxxp:// \ 


fedora 8, gstreamer
