Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 484592
Pulseaudio sound volume in Fedora 10.91 is less than half of volume in Fedora 10.0
Last modified: 2009-02-12 18:07:12 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.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Play any sound, from login tones to music online or from files, all are minimized.

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.
[bob@localhost ~]$ amixer
Simple mixer control 'Master',0
Capabilities: pvolume pswitch pswitch-joined
Playback channels: Front Left - Front Right
Limits: Playback 0 - 65536
Front Left: Playback 60757 [93%] [on]
Front Right: Playback 60757 [93%] [on]
Simple mixer control 'Capture',0
Capabilities: cvolume cswitch cswitch-joined
Capture channels: Front Left - Front Right
Limits: Capture 0 - 65536
Front Left: Capture 62259 [95%] [on]
Front Right: Capture 62259 [95%] [on]
Sounds like a mixer initializatio problem. Try playing around with "alsamixer -c0"
