Sound not working in Debian

After the latest updates/distro-upgrade of Debian testing as of April 2009, my mouse (as mentioned and fixed earlyer) and soundcard stopped working.. Here is the fix for the soundcard:

What I noticed was mplayers error:
Can't open audio device /dev/dsp

/dev/dsp was missing. In order to get it back again all I had to do was(as root):
dpkg-reconfigure alsa-base

And it was fixed :) Now just make sure your soundcard isn't muted, because if it is you can max the volume without getting any sound. I prefer using gmix (Gnome 2.0 Mixer in Fluxbox) for that.

Hope it helps you out :)
