simple instructions for checking out an building from current 
source.  You will be asked if the problem still occurs with current

    You're running mplayer as root?  ... bad idea.  FWIW,

MPlayer dev-SVN-r25022-4.1.2 (C) 2000-2007 MPlayer Team
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU     T7700  @ 2.40GHz (Family: 6, 
Model: 15, Stepping: 10) 

     Running F8.90 (rawhide) ... an never the problem you cite. OK, 
it's a faster duo core, but your's should be no problem.   BTW that 
was yesterday's svn.  The only time I have no sound is usin mplayer 
if FF is running an I've previously run a flash movie in FF 
(  Quit FF, an then mplayer has sound again.  I've brought 
this up on mplayer-users, including the fact that it's probly a 
(proprietary) flash caused problem.... but nobody else is seein it.
