Description of problem:
Fedora Core 2 Test 1
alsa-lib incorrectly selects Mute on all options. 

Work around is to leave alsa-mixer open on desktop, and de-select Mute
and manually move the sliders to accomodate your desired settings.

This is simply annoying! :)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  No sound

Expected Results:  Sound

I very much agree as I posted my comments in a similar bug but they
stated it was not a bug


Alsa defaults the volume to mute. However in firstboot there is no
option to unmute the volume to listen to the sample sound when you
test your soundcard. Even if we leave alsa to mute, we should provide
someway in firstboot to over ride it so the user an successfully test
their card.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2004-02-17 05:31:00 UTC
It's not a bug that alsa starts muted. There are various potential
ways to work around this/deal with this.

Comment 3 raxet 2004-02-17 13:58:04 UTC
So what are the ways to work around this, that doesn't require major
hassles in loading gnome-alsamixer and leaving mixer open during your
session. That'a perhaps a bug of gnome-alsamixer??
