Description of problem:
I have an Ensoniq sound card, driver ES1371 (Audio PCI-97). I run the
Gnome desktop. Following my upgrade from 7.0 to 7.2, my audio output was
inaudible except at the very highest setting of the mixer applet volume
control. Near the very top of the volume setting, the actual volume
increases very quickly. This was not the case in 7.0. Redhat tech support
(Steffen) requested that I report this as a bug.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Upgrade from 7.0 to 7.2.
2.Play some sound files while playing with the mixer applet volume.
3.Sound is inaudible except in the highest 10-20% of the range.
Actual Results: see above
Expected Results: see above
I'd assume this is a kernel change, the mixer applet hasn't changed AFAIK.
I have the same sound card at home, though I usually use the physical volume
control on the speaker rather than the software volume.
