I got side tracked after I sent my email and just a while ago I found
System > Preferences > Sound -> Everything is set to Autodetect.
That isnt what it used to be on my system before the upgrade.
I found my sound card (Intel 82801DB-ICH4) on the list and then things
started to work. I did it on each (sound events, music and movies, audio
conferencing) and everything started to work. Then I clicked close.
Within a few minutes, after checking email and talking on the phone, I
had no sound again. So out of curosity, I went back and all the sections
were back to Autodetect... so I changed them again. This time I clicked
Test next to each one and then clicked close. I still have sound after 1
hour - so that is great! But it is very odd that I have to push Test to
lock that selection in.
I havent tried googles/Goggles yet ( :) ) but I might.
