Sound Is Too Low


I installed Redhat 9 and it detected the sound driver fine, but when I play a cd or try to hear normal sounds, they are too faint. I have turned up the volume all way and don't know what else to try. Can anyone help.

I am trying to increase sound for the desktop too. I think xmms is the player and that is all the way up. I want to also be able to hear windows opening and closing and that kind of stuff. Everything is too low. My speakers work fine in windows.

OK, let me rephrase this... what window manager (or Desktop in plain language) do u use? KDE or Gnome? And while we're at it... what distribution of Linux are u using? Redhat? Mandrake?

I am using Gnome Desktop in Redhat 9. I have adjusted the volume on the desktop and in xmms. The sound is too faint. The speakers work fine on a windows machine.

hi

i am sorry. i dont have xmms installed in my system. you will have poke around in the preferences settings to figure that out. try using any other audio player and check if the problem is isolated to one player or everything

there is noatun in kde amoung others

gnome

If your running GNOME WM, then run "gnome-volume-control" and put all volumes to maximum and it should work.
