Don't know if this is best place to post about this...
Also let me admit that I clearly don't know or understand enough about
sound issues in Linux. This post is to try to better pin down [with me
learning in the process]:
1. What is the cause of the problem?
2. What approach to take to correct it?
In KDE 4.4.0 [Mandriva 2010.0 x86_64] and KDE 4.4.1 [Fedora 12 x86_64].
When I log out and log back in or reboot when KDE starts sound volume
levels jump to painfully loud 100% in KMix and pavucontrol. Why is this?
Is this a KDE, pulseaudio, or alsa issue? As per example I believe that
openSuSE 11.2 does not use pulseaudio by default for KDE apps [it does
for Gnome]. I can confirm that this sound jumping to 100% on boot/login
does not happen in My openSuSE/KDE 4.4.1 partition. I checked and so far
pulseaudio is not even installed in my openSuSE/KDE 4.4.1.
Work around is to disable or remove pulseaudio:
That doesn't necessarily mean that pulseaudio is at fault or does it?
Could this be a driver issue?
Some info [using 'alsa-info.sh --no-upload' in Fedora 12 as example]:
What steps could I take or information could I provide to get to the
bottom of this issue?
