Kubuntu dapper sound problem, HELP!

Hello again, my second post, and yet another problem!

I'm using Kubuntu dapper 6.06 and now i cant play music or any sound anymore. When i installed this distro, the sound worked fine but after a reboot, xmms says that it couldnt open audio, BUT I CAN HEAR YOUTUBE SOUNDS. The drivers should be ok, the mixer is configured properly, but still no sound.

EDIT: The web browser plays music, but the other apps say that some program might be blockin the soundcard. If i turn opera off, it wont help :O so what program can it be?

Any help would be greately appreciated
