ALSA works fine - except the volume-controls
My problem in short terms: The soundcard produces (good) sound, but I cannot control the volume. The only thing I can do with alsamixer is muting the PCM-channel.
I am using kernel 2.6.8, alsa v1.0.9a and the internal soundcard of an asus K7S41 mobo (SiS7012 (says /proc/asound/cards) - uses intel8x0-module). First I had no asound.conf-files nowhere, now there's a global dmix-conf active. Makes no difference: still no control.
I have no ideas where to start. - You?
PS: I have found some hints that this problem is linked to the mobo...
