I installed a clean install of fedora core 4, and now snd (or any other 
recording program) doesn't work. First I had an old snd from RH8.0 and 
that works for playback but not for recording. Then I installed snd from 
sources I had (snd-7) and that doesn't record either. The record button 
turns to red, but time counter sticks at 0.0 and nothing gets recorded. 
I can't even get the VU-meters show anything. Is this a known issue in 
fc4? A quick search with google didn't reveal anything.
arecord records only silence and k3guitune's oscilloscope doesn't show 
anything. None of the programs show any errors, dmesg shows that snd 
uses obsolete OSS audio interface.

Where to start searching for cause of this?
