The sound is working again, hope it lasts.
I suspected something was buggy with KMix because it crashed a couple of times 
when I tried to change configurations in it. (Btw I'm still unsure what 
exactly the volume values [none|absolute|relative] do)
I reinstalled KMix, but no change, so...

*I installed kmix-kde4*, I think it's what did it, right away.

I rebboted (a couple of times) and the old kmix was launched but sound still 
I'm somewhat frustrated not to know what caused the sound to wanish (it's not 
the volume settings I can swear) and I'm waiting to see if the problem comes 
again. If that happens I'll 
try :~$ /usr/lib/kde4/bin/kmix	and see what happens.
