Current default.pa in media-sound/pulseaudio ebuilds is shipped with alsa-sink module disabled.
This is causing the inability to play sound from applications using different sound systems (for eg. Audacious2 w/PA and Firefox+Flash w/ALSA).
I don't know what are the implications of enabling this option by default but fact is that without doing this, user is unable to properly enjoy music while watching Youtube vids ;).
The trick would be editing /etc/pulse/default.pa this way:
I would like to collect opinions on the matter. Perhaps the best way would be binding this to USE="alsa".
In Sabayon we have this option enabled by default and is not causing any trouble.
hal and udev take care of enabling the required modules; if you don't want autodetect you're on your own.
Then, module-udev-detect.so doesn't work properly, because here it fails at enabling alsa-sink and thus making ALSA working via PA.

emerge --info provided
let me know if you need anything else to figure out what's wrong.
Or maybe you should learn to file a bug report.
a) *this* issue is INVALID and so it'll have to stay;
b) if you really feel it's not your mistake, open a new bug report *providing information on how to reproduce your problem*; lack thereof will only cause further closed bugs.
I asked for what information you need. And no, it's not invalid, sorry.
Providing more logs in a second.
OPEN A NEW BUG.

This actually shows an issue with ALSA and kernel, and reports a "Device or resource busy"

Ok, opening a new bug. You don't need to act this way though.
