Re: No sound after installing KDE...

I'm running ALSA with 2.6.8, but every time I start KDE (as opposed to 
just leaving myself logged in) all the volume controls are reduced to 
zero.  I turned on KDE sound service, no change. I am using kmix to 
watch the problem and turn the volume up, it seems to work fine and I 
haven't had any lock problems.
