[PlanetCCRMA] alsaplayer - no audio through jack this morning

   OK, on my studio PC 'alsaplayer -o jack' is working fine, but
'alsaplayer' by itself doesn't work. I get a big list of parameters and then
a message it's trying OSS. After that, nothing more.

   I think that maybe the problem on the office machine might be the mixer
and not anything about alsaplayer itself. I'll mess with that tomorrow and
get back to you if I can't solve it.

   I'll say right up front, I do not understand these mixers at all. It
seems that what I display in gamix changes what each thing does. None of
them have any VUs so you spend all this time poking around looking for
signals. Do you know of an alsa oriented mixer that has VUs of any type? I
haven't found one, expect for ardour.

Try other jack applications to try to find out if it is jack or
alsaplayer. I don't think I have updated anything that could affect either
(not recently). The new ecasound is now jack-aware but it should not
affect other jack programs.

You can see which rpms were installed when by doing a:
  rpm -q -a --last | more

Let me know what the result is since the last time you had the system
