alsa: how to set gnome-volume-control-applet to master channel?

Hi all,

On my Fedora 14 system, the gnome-volume-control-applet manipulates the Front channel, rather than Master (or PCM), which means I continually have to use alsamixer in terminal to adjust the audio volume in the other channels.

In earlier version of Gnome (pre-pulseaudio?), this could be configured in the volume control preferences, but no more.

Anyone know how I can fix this?

My audio adapter is pretty standard Intel stuff. lspci:

You may need to install the pulseaudio tools similar to the process shown here.
