I don't know what anyone needs to answer this question, but here goes.
I'm on Hardy Heron
I've tested my sound in HH and it works fine
I can hear sounds in youtube, if that helps
In a VMWare console running XP, I can't hear anything
When I open the VM I get an error message that says:
"Failed to open sound device /dev/dsp: device or resource busy"
"Virtual device sound will start disconnected."
And, of course, it seems to be correct,
I can't even hear on youtube, if that matters.

Is that enough information for a diagnosis?

Thanks
