Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 160864
On machines with no sound HW, gnome-volume-control should silently fail

Description of problem:
On machines with no sound hardware, the default FC4 installation has a volume control that starts with the desktop startup. Every time a user logs in, they get a "No volume control elements and/or devices found." which they have to acknowledge (ok, I guess they don't *have* to, but it does get confusing/annoying).
At logout time, when X is shutting down, there is another box that flashes by too quickly to see, but I assume it's from the applet trying to save the mixer settings.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install and start FC4 on a machine with no sound HW.
2. Get annoyed by the dialog boxes at login and logout time.
Actual Results: Annoying dialog box appears.
Expected Results: If there is no sound hardware present, it should silently fail. If there is a problem with a machine where sound hardware is present, but not working, then the user will probably go to the sound card detection applet.
