Mint 5 Elyssa, in use since summer '08, sound was working quite acceptably until a recent Level 3 Gstreamer update.. then poof, no sound at all. Nothing. No media sound, no web sound, no system sounds, just the quiet hiss of empty speakers. I've tried everything I can think of - disable PulseAudio (I usually run with it disabled and run on Alsa, because Pulse locks up my system), enable PulseAudio, set all to Alsa, set all to Automatic, set all to PulseAudio, putz with Gnome-Alsa-Mixer settings, putz with Volume (yes it's up, as is PCM), rebooted several times. Nothing - no sound. The Level 3 updates in question were March 16 2009, Gstreamer0.10-plugins-good and Gstreamer0.10-esd, both 0.10.7-3ubuntu0.2. Any suggestions for how I can get my sound back?
