I installed that kernel and the same is occurring. The Gnome fanfare
plays when Gnome starts up but there is no other sound. At one point
before changing kernels, I could get sound by hovering the pointer over
a music file. Now that does no work either, although the pulseaudio
volume control shows a stream is present. I'm mystified now.
