Bug Description

Binary package hint: pulseaudio

System is a Dell D610 PentiumM 1.87.
After upgrading to 10.4 sound stopped working at all, drivers are correctly loaded, no error messages in dmesg, all levels in alsamixer are set to high and sp/dif output is disabled. I cannot check if sp/dif is working since it is only available through the docking station of my laptop.
Neither the headphones nor the internal speakers work.
Sound works correctly in WindowsXP

After further testing it appears that sound is working on the system but not through pulseaudio

Sound is played correctly
