I just tried that and. low and behold, I could hear the wav files fine. I have a friend who's running Myth on Ubuntu and had some sound issues, and he's gonna email what he did to correct his setup. He mentioned how his was "trial-and-error" on mixing what needed to be muted vs. unmuted (which is pretty crappy if you ask me: if something's unmuted, you should hear sound, but I digress).
Any tips on where I should go from here? As far as unmuting certain controls.
