Jaunty Dell Docking Station & Amarok Audio

I just upgraded to Jaunty and I had a little trouble getting the audio to play through the docking statin. Here's what I did:
  • Click Preferences->sound
  • Make sure the Master and PCM are both selected as the "mixer tracks"
  • Open Volume Control
  • Click Preferences and make sure 1ec958 are both checked.
  • go to the "switches" tab and check both iec958 boxes.
Next, I wanted Amarok to work, so I needed to get the KDE sound system working.
$ sudo apt-get install xine-console phonon-backend-xine

And then...
$ sudo ap-get remove phonon-backend-gstreamer
or
install systemsettings and use it to make xine the default sound system.
