The correct sound output should be detected automatically, but the 
detection is sometimes off in some circumstances.  Check 'xfmedia 
--help'.  Try explicitly giving it 'alsa' or 'oss' for the audio driver 
option.  You can try 'esd' also (or is that 'esound'?), but that's not 
recommended as there's no way to reliably sync audio and video.  There 
are a couple other choices, but that's all I can think of for now.  
After you use the cmdline option once, it'll remember what you selected 
for next time.  There'll be a GUI way of picking output plugins in the 
next release.  If that still doesn't work, try running with 'xfmedia 
--debug': that turns the xine engine's verbosity level all the way up, 
and it might print out something useful that'll tell you what's up.
