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.
