[PlanetCCRMA] Still no sound ...

Bingo!!  It was either the DXS levels, which had been set to zero, or 
the master mono chanel, which was muted (master stereo was up).  In any 
case, I'm getting sounds out of my speakers, now, so I can move on to 
the next step, which will probably be trying to get Jack working.

I might as well upgrade to 1.0.3, as well.

I also have some KDE/Gnome-related questions, but I'll post them in a 
separate thread.

Thanks a lot, Mark.

That did the trick.
