Somewhere along the line my gnome-volume-control stopped working.
It *was* working in FC3 and I seldom mess with it unless I'm doing something
which requires the mixer -- like recording from an LP!
Which means I have no idea what/when it got broken. (Perhaps an
update? I've about given up using SElinux; seems like every update to
selinux-policy-targeted kills something and I have to turn it off!)
Sorry, got off on a tangent, there.
Using the speaker icon on my task bar is futile:
Attempting move the slider -- it just reverts to BOTTOM.
Attempting to R-Click->Open Volume Control gets an error box
Sorry, no mixer elements and/or devices found.
The sound works!
Furthermore, alsamixer works. aumix/xaumix work.
Somewhere along the line Gnome has lost the ability to "see" my sound
devices. Anybody else seen this or have any clues?
My built-in sound card Driver: snd-intel8x0
According to Hardware Browser:
nVidia Corporation nForce2 AC97 Controller (MCP)
AlsaMixer v1.0.6 (which sees *all* the goodies) says:
Card: NVidia nForce2
Chip: Realtek ALC650F
This fixed the problem for me:
