Do you have sound (playing a mp3 with mplayer) before you start KDE at
the console?

If not then:
Is the whole system freshly installed?
Did you do the clues out of the handbook? (www.freebsd.org/handbook/)

replacement if you like. (tell me where it lives)

I didn't have any other trouble with sound updating from 3.2 to 3.3, so
I don't think this is 3.3 only.

You can allways do a 'portupgrade -fR kdebase\*' (if you installed the
port portupgrade) if you think you're kde system is broken.
