I bet your sound system was changed from OSS to ALSA and your mixer is
turned down. alsamixergui and turn all the values up, then aumix and
turn those up too for good measure, and if you're feeling really ornery
then do it in kmix and/or gmix too. I somehow seem to need to do this
four or five times, but then it finally sticks.

Another possibility is that the sound daemon you were using is no longer
installed/working/configured right. When I upgraded from 9.0 to 9.1 I
ended up ditching esd and am now running artsd instead because it can
support the i810 chip's lack of mmap'd dsp.
