Well, I got the modules and drivers installed properly this time. The output of lsmod now shows the modules that I need. Ran alsaconf, and alsamixer. Also, /etc/modprobe.conf now shows the proper entries... but still no sound coming through!

So the modules are loaded and when you ran alsaconf it "found" it as a non legacy device? If so, then the module you need is present. Did it want snd-intel8x0 or snd_hda_intel ? If running alsaconf asked if you wanted to edit modprobe.conf to add it, then run alsamixer to set volume levels. What works for me is to install Xmms and use it to play mp3 or ogg files. Once I got that going on, everything else works too.

alsaconfig did indeed find it as a non-legacy. I ran alsamixer, adjusted the volume... still no go. By the way, you and Mike were correct. It wanted snd-intel8x0. But when I tried to install Xmms, it told me that xmms could not be found. I tried with Xmms2 and it gave meCode:
-- Packages where install failed xmms2

Really Jay, just any old player will do. I just am a stalwart Xmms guy as it is very minimal and does the job. I've not used Xmms2. I think I remember having problems with it before. Should be as easy as:
prt-get depinst xmms

Good idea with the modules Dan, he could be missing one or more modules, I know mine uses about 16 modules, I just haven't figured out which ones are the only ones I need or if I actually need them all.
Jay, did you try alsaunmute? I adjusted my settings just like you are doing, but it still did not work until I issued that command and then it was so loud I almost had a cardiac. I didn't even know the command existed until I was browsing through the alsa directory. But then again, this is Fedora, you may not have alsaunmute.

Hey guys! Dan, when I did prt-get for xmms, I was told that it could not be found. And I made sure that contrib is enabled. So I did a locate for it, and came up with Xmms2. Not getting a footprint mismatch or anything... just a failed install on it. But here is the output of lsmod.

Strange as I have xmms in my contrib which should be the exact same as yours. Have you recently updated your ports?
Your modules appear to be all in order. Also, I don't think we have alsaunmute. It's not on mine either. Are all the inputs "up" and unmuted when running alsamixer?

Progress... of sorts!
I found a part of the problem. The last time I had updated my ports was before I remembered to enable contrib. So I did that, and got Xmms installed. Ran alsaconf one more time and made sure that nothing was muted... all looks good. But still no sound... unless I actually login to the system as root. So while I know everything is loaded properly, it doesn't help the current situation as I still get nothing as a regular user. And I can't seem to get it set so that I can run alsaconf or alsamixer as a regular user

I'm pretty sure I ran into this same thing when trying to configure sound. So you DO get sound as root? It's of course a permission problem. Let me R&R (Research and remember) and I'll get back shortly. By the way, running alsaconf as root is the only thing needed. Be back shortly.... suspect and thinking I remember it's merely a "group" problem.
Edit: Yes, I believe that's what it is. Assuming your usename is "jay," as su do:
adduser jay audio
wheel audio video scanner cdrom usb vboxusers plugdev users
chmod -R 0660 /dev/snd
