Default Sound Problem.


For some reason I can't use the software volume on my programs -
Mplayer, Xmms & audacious. My sound card is working (read the faq on
setting up the sound-card) Un-muted everything and set the correct
volume levels..

I have to control the sound volume from the speakers, a bit of a hassle
since my speakers aren't within reaching distance.

Any idea how to fix this?



I installed the audacious-plugins, still no luck..

As far as I know there is no mixer in OpenBSD like in FreeBSD. At least I did not find anyone. Enter mixerctl and look for muted channels, maybe you have enable some more.

use UNIX or die :-)

Off topic, but there is a sound server in OpenBSD -current, enabling the use of multiple sound sources. A "mixer", by some definitions:
