Nope, no sound coming out of my speakers. I was a bit worried that it was my audio card died on me but booting from another external HD with FreeBSD, everything seems to work fine. I'll portupgrade the other HD also to verify if the same issue occurs.

I've only updated gtar, libsndfile, and ruby18-bdb that day, so I assumed it had to do with libsndfile.

Hopefully I'll know more the next few days, so don't spend any time on my problem for now ;-)
