Can't control headphone volume (alsa 1.0.14rc3)


I want to connect a headphone with my PC running openSuse 10.2 with alsa driver 1.0.14rc3. I have tried both controlling everything from KMix and Alsamixer. The only thing I can do is to mute or unmute the sound. I checked with the hardware configuration. I could only adjust volume there (in YasT) with PCM control bar. I don't know what I can do to control the volume for my headphone. Any suggestions? Thank you

I'm not sure if it's the exact same case with SuSe, but in Ubuntu, under the volume tab, increasing or decreasing the Master bar does the trick.

I tried that already. Mute doens't even work with the master bar.
Thanks for sharing your result.
