For those of you using Gentoo pure 64-Bit builds, while this distro
isn't officially supported, there are some things you may want to emerge
to get things to work. I hadn't been able to get sound to work in my
cataclysm install because I had no 32 bit libraries for ALSA. Upon
checking WInecfg I find that I only have option to select OSS Driver
Option to select. There were many other things I tried all of which I
have lost track of, but below is the lucky charms that got everything
working. It is also interesting to note that the ALSA-Driver package is
hardmasked because it is now built into the knernel. DO NOT try to
install alsa-driver ebuild, you don't need it!!

Check to see what libraries you may be missing by running cxdiag. For me this was under /opt/cxgames/bin/cxdiag.
you will want to emerge the following emulation libraries. Once the
libraries are installed you can run cxdiag again and you will find that
you aren't missing as many libraries.
emerging these emulation libraries I was able to see ALSA-Driver Option
on wincfg and was also able to get sound in Gentoo.. As it currently
stands my sound card driver is configured as a module and I will be
recompiling it back into the kernel. Now that I have the libraries I
expect I won't have any further problems. I only wish I would have
figured this out prior to Cataclysm Launch! I hadn't had sound in WoW
for 2 months. A shout of thanks goes to Ken on irc.freenode.com
#crossover channel for pointing me to cxdaig.
works even though my cxdiag still reports 4 missing 32-libs.
When I started I had close to 20 missing libraries.
