I have an odd problem with sound in Deb Lenny. The sound works for all apps I have tested, but the volume is so low that it's barely audible. I have adjusted levels in kmix (I'm using KDE), but this doesn't help much. It seems that a lot of the sliders and switches are missing from kmix, as compared to Fedora 8, which also runs PCM sound.
I'm running a Toshiba A100 laptop with built-in Intel sound. from /proc/modules, I think these are the relevant drivers:
d00k:/proc# cat modules | grep snd
snd_hda_intel 239160 5 - Live 0xf8ac1000
snd_pcm_oss 39200 0 - Live 0xf8a72000
snd_mixer_oss 15424 1 snd_pcm_oss, Live 0xf8a14000
snd_pcm 72324 3 snd_hda_intel,snd_pcm_oss, Live 0xf8a5f000
snd_timer 21028 2 snd_pcm, Live 0xf8a1d000
snd 48324 13 snd_hda_intel,snd_pcm_oss,snd_mixer_oss,snd_pcm,snd_timer, Live 0xf8a24000
soundcore 7520 1 snd, Live 0xf8a11000
snd_page_alloc 10056 2 snd_hda_intel,snd_pcm, Live 0xf89c0000
I would graciously appreciate any enlightment that might be shed on this odd problem. Maybe I'm just "doing something dum", but I haven't been able to find it yet.
