i think the real problem is the alsa pulse conflic, remove pulse

almost willing to bet fix all sound issues in karmic, unless hardware completely doesnt support it, like SIS graphics

could reverse the process to keep pulse if you wanted

software conflict, this should fix it

since this is a microsoft, i mean software conflict problem, you should be able to use this method on all karmic install no matter what your hardware is. if not, i would suggest backing up your info and starting from the top. again tho, you shouldnt have to. any pakages you already have shouldnt affect the script either, or your install. restores all sound including system sounds. also stops freezing issues that happened when adjusting audio settings.

THIS METHOD CLEARS OUT PULSE COMPLETELY BUT DOES FIX THE SOUND. I TESTED THE SCRIPT ON A FRESH INSTALL EVERYTHING WORKS PERFECT AFTER SUDO NAUTILUS. KEEP READING

sudo apt-get remove libsdl1.2debian-alsa

includes audacious music player, vlc , and ubuntu restricted extras(minus pulse updates :D ).
