Bug Description

current intrepid daily 20081017 and beta should lower the volume of the emu10k1 soundcard -
currently it's so loud that the system startup sound can be heard 2 rooms away. Due to the fact that I can not react quick enough I'm only able to disconnect my speakers or pull my headphones down.

Still a bug in current 8.10 release live-cd.

In addition to #274290 this is very nasty since every trial startup of X gives this noise and the volume is not changeable.

Same problem with Jaunty A5.

Sae problem with Jaunty beta - soundcard is *damn* loud.

Due to bgs in the sigmatel codecs, what is considered loud for one revision
may be the opposite for another. This problem is intractable.

Hi Daniel,

this is not a wishlist thing. This is an annoying bug that was/is not present in 8.04.2 but in Jaunty and 8.10!

The soundcard is incredibly loud and you cannot do anything except taking out the cable .... which is not a viable solution for the 21st century.

Just my 50ct

Still an open issue with current karmic3 -
the default volume is set to 100%. Maybe this behaviour can change if the the codecs are buggy.

Still the same with karmic4 alpha - it's pretty damn loud.
