Well I've found at least THREE different volume controls on my F10
installation, ALL of which need to be cranked up to get a decent volume.

First of all, there's the one on the top panel. Then there's the
Pulse audio mixer. Then there's another one buried in some other menu
(don't remember which one--the f10 machine isn't up at the moment. I
always have to dig around for it, then crank it all the way up so I can
even hear the test sounds (or any other sounds).


You just need one mixer. I use gnome-alsamixer. It is graphical, and very simple to use.

Give it a try. I am pretty sure it will be adequate for your needs.
