Aw heck, sound problem. Cmedia 8738 PCI card.

Using a $9.00 Aopen soundcard because the motherboard onboard out jack is broken, so I needed a quick cheap fix.  Well, I know the modules are loading, (snd-cmipci and snd-pcm-oss, as well as various others) and I'm using KDE, which doesn't give any alsa errors, and I've confirmed alsa makes /dev/snd files, and that everything which should be unmuted/muted is done so, or so I think.  User is in the audio group, and tried adding just the two main modules to list of modules in rc.conf.  Everything works, no sound, and any configurations I could find by exhaustively searching the forums has failed.   

Anyway, what could I possibly be missing?

Check the parameters in KDE control center Sound & Multimedia.

^^^Yeah, if I choose Alsa, Auto, or if I disable the panel altogether, nothing.  I ran across some more threads just searching, and gonna try some more things tonight when I get home.  Thanks.   lol

Try to playe some audio from command line. For exmaple a WAV file with aplay:
aplay file.wav
Or mplayer:
mplayer avi_or_mp3_or_even_wav.file

And check the output msges.

Damn.  What a freakin' idiot I am.  Speakers plugged in wrong.  Plugged into the DEAD onboard sound ports of all things.  I just didn't look close enough.  There's been so much going on lately at home.

Sound is good.  On to the next problem...
