Hi, I have compiled KDE trunk on kubuntu 9.10 , on kde 4.3.3 which i was using 
before compiling trunk , I had sound , but now , sound system fails to start, 
I removed ~/.kde/share/config/phonon* but it didn't make any difference.
then I upgraded alsa to ver.1.0.21 , and used alsaconf to install sound card 

btw, i can play mp3s on tty1 with mplayer, but i can't play them in konsole, 
this is the output of mplayer in konsole :
