Sound slider

My sound slider (top right hand corner) is always on full and wont go any lower. If I fiddle with the Volume Control it makes no difference.

I don't know, but is this related to the fact that only totem-xine will play mp3s. Not music player or XMMS; which return errors like "could not open resource for writing" and "check if your sound card is configured correctly"

This sounds to me like esd (gnome) or arts (kde) is taking over your sound device. Try stopping it and see what happens. Also see this thread for more info on sound stuff.
