All sound, or just streaming audio?  If it's streaming audio, not your ambient sound and UI dings, consider this advice from the Firestorm/Phoenix support team. Not being a Linux user myself, I have no idea, but it might be relevant to your situation....

Streaming audio/video issues on 64-bit linux distros are primarily due to the fact that Firestorm is a 32-bit build. This introduces compatibility issues. Nonetheless, some workarounds are possible. But be aware that they are not necessarily flawless.

First, please ensure that you have gstreamer installed, along with these 3 plugin sets: good, bad, ugly. You will also need to ffmpeg plugin. Many distros come with all of these already installed, but some do not (eg, OpenSuSE).

Log out of Firestorm.

Using your file manager (dolphin or whatever), locate the Firestorm install directory), and inside that the shell script called firestorm. Open this with a text editor (Kate, or whichever you prefer).

Find the line, '#export LL_BAD_OPENAL_DRIVER=x', in the 'firestorm' script, and take out the '#', to make the line look like 'export LL_BAD_OPENAL_DRIVER=x', save the script.

Now run Firestorm and try streaming audio. You may experience a delay in in-world sounds; if so, relogging might help.
