No Sound

For the past few days I've been puzzled as to why Galaga doesn't make any noises on my Debian Woody box, but is perfectly noisy on my father's Debian Sarge box. Today I discovered that XMMS wasn't making any noises either.

Rather than try and figure out what had happened to my OSS drivers, I went for the obvious, and looked to see if the speakers were plugged into the sound card. Low and behold when I gave my father his computer I had somehow managed to unplug my speakers from my computer when I moved his computer out of my computing "stack".

Problem sorted, and Galaga now makes noises...
