ALSA has fallen and can't get up!

I still have a problem with my sound, but I have narrowed it down
to the fact that ALSA isn't working correctly.
Here's what I know:
XMMS will only play using the eSound output plugin.
MPlayer won't play any sound.
Xine does have sound, but I think that it's using eSound, also.
Audacity, which I believe uses only ALSA, gives me an error
message and states that it won't be able to record or playback any
sound. It's not lying.
This all happened a couple of days ago after I performed an
update via synaptic on some packages. Unfortunately, I don't remember
what the packages were. I just know that my sound isn't working
correctly anymore. Before the update, all sound worked correctly.
Is there someone out there that has some experience
troubleshooting sound problems on Hoary? I am running Hoary on my new
Inspiron 6000 laptop.
