Downgrading gnome-volume-control and mixer_applet to be usable

I have installed Fedora 11 preview in VMware, and found that PulseAudio has become more entrenched in Gnome. :( The first symptom of it was the login sound kept repeating till I killed PulseAudio. I found that panel applet was useless. So I hunted for a way to revert to the previous style.

First I found I could just downgrade to the older version of gnome-media, but I couldn't do the same with gnome-applets. I tried recompiling the old gnome-applets against the newer Gnome, but that didn't work. Then I found that the newer version of both packages have configure options to revert to the previous style. So I downloaded the src.rpms and recompiled both. It works!

I am glad I found these configure options. For a minute I was considering trying to move to XFCE again.

  I have attached my two spec file patches.
