Your a genius. Or at least you had the critical piece of information.
My /etc/security/console.perms.d/50-default.perms had no sound clauses
at all. It had no cdrom clauses either. Once that correction was made
sound works. I will have to remember to check that in the future.


But how could that have happened. I assume it was related to the system
not recognizing the sound card.
