Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 119540
Gnome's volume control shows multiple entries for SiS sound card
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:39 EST
Description of problem:
This one is a weird one. So, I got this fully supported SiS-based AMD
Duron 1.3 GHz PC and it works fine. Its sound card is an SiS-based
onboard sound card and it is fully supported by ALSA. I have
installed Linare, Xandros, Mandrake 10 and Fedora on this machine,
and all support the sound card.
The problem with Fedora2-test2 though, is that Gnome's volume manager
shows TWO entries for this sound card, while it is only one card. I
understand that one is for OSS and the other one is for Alsa,
however, if you check out my screenshot here:
you will see that the SiS entry (the one marked as "Alsa Mixer") has
DUPLICATE controls. I get two Line-in controls, I get two CD, two
Mic, two Phone, two Video etc etc
From what I remember, Mandrake's Gnome didn't exhibit this problem
(also with kernel 2.6.x but with gnome 2.4.2).
So, this is quite annoying having useless duplicate entries of the
controls, plus having that C-Media entry for OSS, while the system-
config-soundcard utility (also in the screenshot) only finds
(correctly) a single sound card, the SiS one.
In the screenshot I have also included the "lspci -v" information for
the sound card, just in case you need its specs.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch gnome's volume control.
Gnome's volume control finds two different sound cards (while there
is only one) but even worse, the correct sound card's controls are
To not have duplicated entries in the volume control for my Alsa
Yeah, it's a big problem, we've been talking about how to rewrite it.
