Personally, I see no reason not to continue on with the CCRMA
install. Worst case is that sound still won't work, but you WILL
be further down the path to where you ultimately want to be.
Best case is that the new packages will fix the problem "automatically".

Once you've got that installed, let us know how you're trying
to hear/play sound?  ... is jack running or not?  What player
are you using?  I assume you're using a sound file you KNOW
has made sound in the past?  Check the Alsa Soundcard matrix
to make sure your specific card is supported:
