    Botched OSS4 installation -> ALSA broken

    Hi all,

    After trying to unsuccessfully install OSS4, it seems I've broken ALSA and have no sound. I've uninstalled the oss4 packages and rebooted, and now alsamixer reports "cannot open mixer: no such file or directory". Here's the output of aplay -l:

    Code:
    **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
    aplay: device_list:244: snd_ctl_pcm_next_device
    PulseAudio also doesn't find any hardware devices, though it is able to play to the Apple Airport Express down the hall.

    I'm running 10.04 64-bit on a Thinkpad X61.

    Any help very much appreciated.

    Huh. It fixed itself after I put the computer to sleep and woke it up. Yay.
