I was able to use XMMS to play streaming audio yesterday.  After rebooting and using mplayer I
can no longer stream audio or play CDs with XMMS because the soundcard is blocked.

dmesg only has this about my intel sound card:

How do I see if I belong to the group audio?  How do I add myself to that
group?

I've seen postings on the Ubuntu and Mandriva forums but does anyone
know the Vector way to solve this?

$groups command will list all groups you belong to. I believe you are part of audio group, if you have used default settings when you created new user. If you do not belong to audio group, use gpasswd command as root (#gpasswd -a username group_name i.e. gpasswd -a bad_gui audio) to add yourself to that group.

Also, next line from your dmesg output confuses me:

Code:
ALSA /mnt/hdd3/root/alsa/alsa-driver-1.0.15/pci/ac97/ac97_codec.c:2128: AC'97 0 analog subsections not ready

/mnt/hdd3... Huh

Yes, I am a member of group audio.  Also, root was able to play a CD.

Maybe the original kernel compilation used /mnt/hdd3 as the source files to compile ALSA into
shipped kernel 2.6.22 with VL5.9?

I changed XMMS output to use ALSA rather than OSS driver - not sure if this helped.

Sykpe still has no audio output and I can't select an audio driver for it.
