No sound with Xine

Hello there

I've installed sarge last-night through netinstall
And i have installed xine through apt-get install xine
Video flows like jelly but there's no sound.
All other sound related programs like XMMS work fine.

Is there maybe some package that might be missing?
If i check the log it claims another program might be using PCM driver.
Alsa is installed

check your xine configuration. make sure you're using the right sound driver.

right click on the player and choose Settings > Setup. click the audio tab and change the driver that's in there if it's not using the right sound driver.

thnx that helped
I found out that there are different setup levels beginner and so on you can choose the sounddriver only if you are in expert mode.
