Well, sound.ko and snd_ich.ko (the correct modules) are loaded but there is 
still no sound on PCBSD7 Alpha 2 with KDE 4.1 Beta 2. 
I tried playing sound with Dragon Player and Juk. But the files don't' even 
begin to play on either.
Changing the backend from gstreamer to xine did not help either.
Not even playing a system notification in the system manager produced any 

I also noticed, that ejecting a CD does not work. It does not get unmounted. 
Unmounting only works from a console (xterm).


PS: I created a PBI from amarok-fs, a full screen application for Amarok a 
while ago. It works nicely.  Where should I send it?
