Description Bob Agel 2009-02-08 15:17:44 EST
Description of problem: Onboard sound (VIA VT8233series) has been fine with Fedora 10, 9, 8 (etc) until Rawhide.  On the Rawhide partition, volume is well less than half normal.  Volume is set to 93% and is barely audible.

How reproducible: Play any sound, from login tones to music online or from files, all are minimized.

Hi Bob,

I had a similar problem and fixed it by set PCM to 100% (it was more or less 50%). I didn't find a way to change that value from 'Sound Preferences' and had to use 'kmix' as workaround (I believe it could be done by 'amixer set PCM 100%'). Here attached there is my alsa-info in case it helps.

Thanks for the suggestion.  Here's 'amixer' for illustration.  I could move it up to 100% (or simply turn up the main speaker volume a bit-physical effort would be required on my part, though ;-) ) and have a workaround, but I wanted to log the bug to make sure that the devs noted the glitch.

Sounds like a mixer initializatio problem. Try playing around with "alsamixer -c0"
