Sound volume scale in KDE mixer

My sound card (some integrated SiS using intel 8xx driver on a laptop) works perfectly.

But the volume control in KDE behaves strangely - the scale is definitely wrong.

When volume is set to 50-60% I hear absolutely nothing. At 100% I get maximum volume, but anything below these 50-60% is absolute silence.

No such problems in Windoze on the same machine. It seems that the problem is with scaling. Can I somehow map 50% to 0%, so the scale will be uniform?

I'm not sure whether the root of the problem in KDE, kernel driver or the sound chip...

Please advice!

I can't remember if Red Hat has it installed by default, but try running "aumix" from a terminal.

I had the same problem with mandrake 9.1, tweaking with aumix fixed the problem (remember to save the settings though).

"aumix" didn't help....

When I change settings in it, they are instantly reflected in the KDE mixer and vice versa. The effect is the same: when slider is set to 50%, I hear nothing...

How did you use it?
