Amarok not playing after yum update

I have a problem with Amarok. I did a yum update today (which completed ok) but now I cannot play music from Amarok. Rather, it appears as if it is playing but no sound is coming out of the speakers. Other players (xmms, mplayer, xine) are all working fine.

A quick note is that on starting up, there is a message that "Phonon: KDE's multimedia library The audio playback device PulseAudio sound server does not work. falling back to."

A google search shows that I may need to configure amarok to output sound using something like Alsa. Which is fine, I have alsa installed:

[arthur@platypus ~]$ rpm -qa | grep alsa
[arthur@platypus ~]$
but Amarok only displays pulse audio as the only output device! Whats going on please? Am on Fedora 12, Amarok 2.2.1 with xine backend.

Almost the same issue

I had to run an "alsactl restore" (or you could probably run alsamixer), then my Amarok sound came back. But for me, nothing else is playing, and if I go to System Settings -> Multimedia, I now only see PulseAudio - all the other entries (like the one for my soundcard, "Default", and some others) has disappeared.

"alsactl restore" does not do anything for me. Yes, in system settings, all the others have vanished for me too. Only PulseAudio remains

"yum remove pulseaudio" has solved this issue. Reboot afterwards.
