Do you get sound at all from alsa? By default alsa sets the sound
volume to 0(zero). So, you need to run alsamixer and turn every thing
up. Once you turn the volumes up run: alsactl store
Then in your alsa startup script after you load your alsa modules you need
to run: alsactl restore. There are also two versions of the alsa plugin
for xmms. One is for alsa 0.5 and the other is for alsa 0.9, make sure
you have the one for alsa 0.9. Also, in xmms if you bring up the settings
you need to choose the output plugin. It defaults to oss. You can
use oss with alsa, you just need to load the alsa-oss modules.
To load the alsa-oss modules do:
modprobe snd-pcm-oss &> /dev/null
modprobe snd-mixer-oss &> /dev/null
modprobe snd-seq-oss &> /dev/null
