On R14 I have the following sound packages installed:

libpulse 4.0-6
pulseaudio 4.0-6
pulseaudio-alsa 2-2

$ aplay /opt/trinity/share/sounds/KDE_Window_UnSticky.wav

This gets more interesting comparing the sound modules loaded in the 3513
install and the R14 install:


Module                  Size  Used by
snd_intel8x0           22768  2
snd_ac97_codec         89868  1 snd_intel8x0
ac97_bus                 874  1 snd_ac97_codec
snd_pcm                61237  2 snd_ac97_codec,snd_intel8x0
snd_page_alloc          5901  2 snd_intel8x0,snd_pcm
snd_timer              14902  1 snd_pcm
snd                    44394  8 snd_ac97_codec,snd_intel8x0,snd_timer,snd_pcm
soundcore               4378  1 snd


Module                  Size  Used by
snd_intel8x0           23757  0
snd_ac97_codec         89404  1 snd_intel8x0
ac97_bus                 878  1 snd_ac97_codec
snd_pcm                63880  2 snd_ac97_codec,snd_intel8x0
snd_page_alloc          5978  2 snd_intel8x0,snd_pcm
snd_timer              14946  1 snd_pcm
snd                    44598  4 snd_ac97_codec,snd_intel8x0,snd_timer,snd_pcm
soundcore               4386  1 snd

They are identical, so what ever is going on with R14, it has exactly the same
modules loaded and available that 3.5.13 does, but for some reason it is not
seeing the sound card or anything associated with it.
