Thanks all. I did try the Advanced Volume Control - in fact I had to
do that as well because my sound card had the incorrect channels
configured for the default volume slider.
Just for the record - to stop pulseaudio from respawning in F11, edit
/etc/pulse/client.conf and add "autospawn = no". Then you can do
"pulseaudio -k" to kill it.
This got sound working again for me - although obviously without the
features that pulse gives. It seems my sound card is incorrectly
configured - I'm currently trying to decipher the alsa sound card
config format. Not much fun!
