No sound in KDE on Roswell

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Roswell
2. Add User
3. Login as user
4. startx (This starts KDE)
5. Select Sound | System Notifications from Control Center
6. Select "Play sound" for any event.
7. Click on the folder button to open the sound folder
8. Select any sound and press Preview button

Works on all of my machines (P3-450 with an ISA SB16, P3-850 notebook with ESS
Maestro3 chipset, Celeron 400 notebook with ESS Maestro 2e, Dual-P3-733 with SB
Do you get any error messages on the console when you run startx?
Also, could anything else be using the soundcard?
I am seeing the following in /var/log/messages:
Aug 4 15:06:01 cr34090-a modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sound-slot-0
Aug 4 15:06:01 cr34090-a modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sound-service-0-3
I don't think that anything could be contending for the sound device. I just
did a workstation install. I installed KDE but didn't install GNOME. I haven't
knowingly setup anything else to use sound.
I'll attach my XFree86.0.log as well.

So sound isn't working at all (outside of KDE)?
Then I guess you forgot to set up your soundcard (the installer does NOT detect
Did you run sndconfig?
Running sndconfig fixed it. I don't remember having to run it before. Maybe my
memory is going...
