Description Frank 2010-05-27 20:16:06 UTC
Description of problem:

Updated from F 12  to F 13, and now the sound is way too low. Each available lever in any application used or in sound preferences etc. is set to max, but sound level is still too low. I didn't have such a problem in F12   

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Sorry if this isn't the proper component...

2. Put everything to max
3. Sound still too low
Actual results:
see above

Expected results:
see above

Additional info:

Let me know if I can provide config files or anything else.

Comment 1 Frank 2010-05-28 15:02:26 UTC
So after installing gmixer, I found out that "master front" volume was all down.
Sound works now.
So this is technically not a bug - but one would think that the volume control that is by default installed in the task bar is the one you need to change the volume, rather than installing an extra package (or use alsamixer command line tool)? But maybe this is due to the upgrade, and the confusion is not present from a clean install?
