Trouble with Alsa 0.9.6-5, 2.4.22 AC97 audio and /dev/mixer under Gnome 2.4.0-1


In Gnome Volume Control 2.4.0, I try to set the volume, but get
the error
Unable to open audio device '/dev/mixer'.
Please check that you have permissions to open 'dev/mixer'
and that you have sound support in your kernel.


The motherboard is a Shuttle FX41 that has Via KM266/VT8375 N.B.
and VT8235 S.B. that is AC'97 2.2 compliant.

$ dir /dev/mixer
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 11 Nov  6 17:24 /dev/mixer -> /dev/mixer0

$ dir /dev/mixer0
crw-rw----  1 root audio 14,  0 Nov  6 17:24 /dev/mixer0

$ grep audio /etc/group

# lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by    Not tainted
sound                  58324   0  (unused)
ac97_codec             13576   0 
[snip non-sound stuff]

Anyone have any thoughts?
