Pulse Audio Volume Control
When I go into Pulse Audio Volume control, It says "Connection Failed, Connection refused"

What would cause this?

What tests should I run to tell you all what my system is doing?

How do I re-establish the connection to Pulse Audio?

I'm running SuSE 11.4 and hwinfo --sound gives me this:

You may want to look here for the pavucontrol app, and it's use;

I can't even get to the Pulse audio volume control at all. It always says, "Connection refused" :(
