This is strange. Just got KDE-4.4 running yesterday after some compile
issues so I might not be much help.
I find that if I open: "Multimedia" in SystemSettings that I no longer
have PulseAudio listed as a choice for an Output Device. So, I checked
and, yes, Phonon was built with PulseAudio support.
So, although I have no problem playing sound through my hardware device
(the only choice listed), I am very puzzled.
The place to start is with SystemSettings. What does your install list
if you go to: "Multimedia" in SystemSettings?
