Description Eugenia Loli-Queru 2004-03-31 03:53:28 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.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every Time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch gnome's volume control.
Actual results:
Gnome's volume control finds two different sound cards (while there 
is only one) but even worse, the correct sound card's controls are 
all duplicated.

Expected results:
To not have duplicated entries in the volume control for my Alsa  
sound card.

Yeah, it's a big problem, we've been talking about how to rewrite it.
