This is fixed in the test kernel (kernel-2.6.21-1.3255) on my Dell
D820. With the new one, the ALSA system works and media players go
out of the box. With earlier kenels, ALSA did not work, but the other
sound system, OSS, did work, and programs that allow user to choose
sould system could be made to work. system-config-sound will tell you
what you need to know.
ps: on the D820, the kernel boot line hpet=disable is needed.
Otherwise it does not start. That's a known bug, AFAIK

I get this error:

The first time this happened yesterday a warm reboot fixed it.
I'm not sure how to diagnose whether this is a hardware problem,
or a Linux problem...
