i only have sound through firefox.... mplayer, xmms, vlc, etc there is no sound....but it works perfect when watching youtube in firefox for example.
fuser -v /dev/dsp* and fuser -v /dev/snd/* both reurn nothing, to me meaning the card is not being accessed even when a media player is running. when i run firefox and browse a youtube video i get
(1:119)# fuser -v /dev/snd/*
USER PID ACCESS COMMAND
/dev/snd/controlC0: paul 3641 F.... panel-18-mixer
/dev/snd/pcmC0D0p: paul 5667 F...m plugin-containe
