Broken Sound, Tried Everything

Sound was working perfectly when I did a fresh install of fedora 8. I had pulseaudio installed by default and since everything was working fine i never bothered about it.

Today while watching a movie in VLC, I suddenly lost sound. It just broke.

Sound works in XMMS, but does not in VLC, mplayer and Banshee.

I have removed all pulseaudio packages and the pulse audio alsa plugin.

I dont seem to know what to do, I have no clue as to why sound works in XMMS, and nowhere else.

System-config-sound works perfectly fine and I can hear the demo sound.

I am attaching my system logs along with this post. It contains outputs of lsmod, /etc/asound.conf etc.

Thanks.

Gives links to a thread here, and some other possibilities. The fact that system-config-soundcard works, but little else does, makes me think it's the permissions thing--try adding the suggested lines to 50-default-perms, ensuring that ConsoleKit and avahi-daemon are running, reboot and see if it helps.

I added the lines mentioned, doesn't help.

ConsoleKit and avahi-daemon are running.

See, I had pulseaudio up and running. Suddenly it stopped working. I fiddled with the settings, nothing improved. i then REMOVED pulseaudio. So as of now, I only have ALSA running.

xmms, system-config-soundcard and sound in the mozilla flash plug-in work. Everything else is broken. Video still works fine in VLC.

Removed pulseaudio completely.

Thanks for the assistance, scottro.

Thank you. I have added that solution to the rhsound page, and while I appreciate your thanks, it seems you figured it out all by yourself. However, you're welcome anyway.
