Sound problems

Hi again,

since a few months ago, I was having some problems with amarok, mplayer 
and firefox working together, playing sound on flash videos etc.

today I uninstalled pulseaudio, selected alsa as the default device 
output in the system settings, and recompiled kmix and mplayer to work 
without pulse audio (nothing needs to be done to amarok).

Now everything works perfectly!
