Something odd happened to sound - found a fix.
I'm using Sid. My sound disappeared after an upgrade. Saytime produced
an error message:
sox soxio: Can't open output file `/dev/audio': unknown file type `ossdsp'
Googling, I found someone using Ubuntu who solved this by installing the
_Debian_ package libsox-fmt-all. I did this and sound returned.
A bug report is probably required on some package but I don't know
which. I'm posting this in case anyone else has the same problem.
