Description of problem:
The gnome-volume-manager is only showing 2 slider controls (R/L),
labelled as DAC.  The RME Digi96/8 PST card has digital (optical,
coax, and internal CDROM) as well as analog and adat interfaces.

The gamix mixer app seems to correctly support the interfaces of this
card.  Maybe gnome-volume-manager could "learn" this from gamix?  I
always grab gamix from:


It looks like this is the homepage but I can't tell for sure since
it's in Japanese:


If there's anything I can do to help getting this support added to
gnome-volume-manager just let me know.


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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.on a system w/ a RME Digi96/8 PST soundcard open gnome-volume-manager

Actual Results:  only 2 slider controls

Expected Results:  multiple sliders and/or dropdowns to select the
different inputs.

gnome-volume-manager manages disk volumes ;-).  Reassigning to

Comment 2 John (J5) Palmieri 2004-11-12 14:55:43 UTC
Opps that should be gnome-media

Don't know if it helps you w/ this but I just stumbled accross another
app which supports this card _very_ nicely.  Almost a clone of the
actual RME mixer gui.  It's a fairly small tk script called TkDigi
which front-ends for amixer.  It can be found here:


If there's any additional info or any testing I can do just let me
know ...

sigh ... and after yet a bit more searching I've found that the
alsa-tools package contains rmedigicontrol, which is an excellent
little mixer app for this soundcard.  Right up there w/ the RME
provided app for windoze.

After thinking more about this it's perfectly reasonable that this
series of soundcards would have their own speciality mixer app.  This
is the case w/ windoze and I believe macs too.  So, I guess this has
turned into a request to include the alsa-tools package in Fedora ...

alsa-tools is available from Fedora Extras ... closing
