Default Absolutely no sound whatsoever after latest emerge update

This points to an issue with your alsa configuration/installation.

Same error as above, a problem with alsa.

Not quite sure what the error is, perhaps you need to run mpg321

So it seems you have all the plugins for ALSA enabled.

Just shooting randomly in the dark here:
* Did you update alsa recently? Do you have old alsa pcm
configurations files from before? Maybe those files are screwing
things up.
* Kernel module for your sound card?
