Description Bastien Nocera 2007-09-05 15:02:13 EDT
After starting up pulseaudio, I couldn't get any sound out of my speakers, but
got no errors or warnings.

I needed to install pavucontrol and set the volume manually. Could the default
volume be set to a nice default?
Comment 1 Lennart Poettering 2007-09-25 09:19:42 EDT
This should be fix in ALSA, not in PA.
Comment 2 Bastien Nocera 2007-09-25 09:35:11 EDT
Why should that be fixed in ALSA? The volume was fine in ALSA, but not in PA...
Comment 3 Lennart Poettering 2007-09-25 12:32:52 EDT
Right now, PA doesn't change the volume of any ALSA devices unless the user
explicitly asks for it. I.e. if the volume was set to 0 in PA then some other
app did that change. (Eventually I might add saving/restoring of the sink/source
volumes to PA, but right now I consider this a system setting, that is
stored/restored by ALSA.)

Maybe this is an instance of the "muting madness" bug?
Comment 4 Valdis Kletnieks 2007-09-26 12:22:18 EDT
Definitely is "mute" not "volume set to zero", at least on my box.
Comment 5 Bastien Nocera 2007-10-11 06:12:55 EDT
Couldn't reproduce, closing.
