increasing volume


Hello All:

I'd like to know how to increase the volume on my box. I'm using RH 7.3; my sound card is recognized and I've already been to the mixer. I'm using kde.
Please let me know; all relevant info appreciated.

Thanks,

ergo_sum

Use that mixer, there is, as far as I know, no other way to change the volume in linux. (kde)
I made it a permanent icon in the dock so I can click on it and change it real fast.

Thanks, all.
It seems the mixer, as its name implies, is for equalizing the waves produced.
However, I found out about aumix, which has a default setting of approx 50% of total volume.
Adjusting the setting appropriately will increase the volume

So I think this problem is solved.

Again, thanks.
