Strange: Can only control volume using headphone slider


This is a strange problem. I can only control the volume on my laptop (acer aspire 3005) using the headphone slider in the soundmixer. I configured alsa (numerous times) it sees my sound card (intel8x0 sis sound controller)I am using Xandros 3.

Anyone have this problem and find a solution. It is quite annoying.

My soundcard uses the same driver and has the same problem (its a desktop). I have to use the volume on my speakers. The software controlled volume don't work for me either.

In KDE you can right click the volume control and choose the master channel. My system at work did the same thing until I switched the master channel to PCM.

As of 2.6.15 this issue has been fixed...check if theres a upgrade for your distro or compile your own

Is the the kernel itself or alsa? When I upgraded to X4 with alsa 1.0.11 it is fixed. I can use both the slider and the keyboard to control sound. I need though to remove X4 for it just is not yet up to par with X3.
