Boths system works fine. signoff for i686 and signoff (with nvidia) for 

One issue: it seems that there is a new module for the pc speaker: 
snd_pcsp. When it is loaded, udev assign to it devices that are usually 
assigned to the sound card (/dev/dsp, etc). If it's loaded before the 
souncard module, /dev/dsp will be assign to the pc speaker and /dev/dsp1 
will be assigned to the sound card causing some apps to fail using the 
sound card. the easiest way to fix it is to blacklist it and to reboot. 
That's how I fixed it. I don't have time to investigate that further. BTW, 
these's a related thread on the forum:
