How about gnome-alsamixer? Then we have something with a nice GTK2+
front-end that does the same thing.

http://www.paw.co.za/projects/gnome-alsamixer/

I rebuilt the source RPM and installed/ran it on FC2 just fine.

I'm back once again to FC1 because, after getting sound to basically
work, I still had big problems with evolution. It crashes at random
(actually it crashes with consistency) and, despite following
suggestions from earlier posts, I couldn't get it to import my data from
1.4. I also miss all of the extra stuff from Fedors.us and livna.org...

Oh, well - maybe the next test release will bear more fruit. If an
update comes along in the next few days that fixes some of this, maybe
I'll try again. Now that my data can be safely isolated from "fresh"
installs, it's not so bad to reload.

Cheers,

Chris
