Fedora 10 no control over audio volume
I have solved the problem, sort of, by axing pulse audio
with the command as root :
su -c "yum remove alsa-plugins-pulseaudio pulseaudio"
Now, the audio distortion has stopped and most tracks
only go a little into the red zone on the envy24 control mixer,
but I still have no way to adjust the PCM volume.
I'm happier than before, but not really satisfied.
There should be a way for me to adjust the PCM volume, but
I still don't know it.
