Slackware 9.1 Volume


How do I turn the system volume up in WindowMaker on Slackware 9.1? I know that the sound devices are configured correctly because if they weren't then there would be some type of error message of /dev/dsp. But anyways, anyone have a solution?

Use a mixer tool, may be alsamixer !!!
as root, run alsaconf. <<---- this is for configuring ur soundcard.
Then run aslmixer <<<------- this is for changing volume.
then run "/usr/sbin/alsaconf store" <<--------- this is to save the volume changes

np chris,
btw ur signature is really dangerous to newbies!!!

And there is a mistake in my earlier post:
for storing the mixer settings, its:
/usr/sbin/alsactl store

i had typed "/usr/sbin/alsaconf store"
er.. sorry for the typo
