I will start by saying I am new to the world of Linux and even newer to the world of Fedora. I have recently installed Fedora 9 on my laptop and have been having a strange issue in regards to my speakers.
It seems everything works fine until I try to mute my system sound. In XP I would usually just hit the mute button on the bar of multimedia buttons below the touch pad.
In Fedora when it shows my Master sound as muted it seems to only have muted the front and top speakers, it will not mute the bottom speaker until I go to volume control and mute the PCM as well. However if I mute PCM it mutes everything. It seems PCM is acting as master while master only control 4 of the speakers. Why is that?
My volume control panel show me as using the Intel ICH6 Asla Mixer.
