Problem with sound in Slackware 10
Yesterday I installed Slackware 10, it worked perfectly. I was so impressed that today I removed my windows partition, and reinstalled Slack as the only OS in the computer. This time though, there was a problem.
When it booted, I got the following error message just before the login prompt:
ALSA warning: No mixer settings found in /etc/asound.state. Sound may be muted. Use 'alsa mixer' to unmute your sound card, and then 'alsactl store' to save the default ALSA mixer settings to be loaded at boot.
I ignored it and started KDE to see what would happen. Sound wasn't muted, but it was very quiet. I had to turn my speakers right up to hear. So then I did as it said, ran 'alsa mixer' as root, and set the Master, PCM, Synth, Line, CD, PC Speaker, and Aux volumes to max.
I started KDE again, and sure enough, the music at the splash screen was very loud. I thought it was fixed. But now every program I run in KDE has even quieter sound than before, almost silent. It's only the splash screen that has any real volume.
What the hell is wrong with this thing?
I would really appreciate any help.
EDIT: In case it matters, I have also made sure that kmixer, and the volume control on several apps is set as high as it will go, but it has no effect.
