According to the install doc at alsa-project.org:
Note: All mixer channels are muted by default. You must use a native
or OSS mixer program to unmute appropriate channels (for example a
mixer from the alsa-utils package).
Seems to me that upstream defaults to muted, so FC defaulting to muted
isn't really unexpected.
Notice the lack of caring on my part one way or the other. It's not like
your going to be reinstalling FC 2 every day or anything.
