pulseaudio can't manage OSS
I was just chillin' trying to listen '96 Blackstreet - No Diggity on Firefox/Youtube using MATE desktop,
when suddenly I wanted to give more juice to the speakers, and realized that:
mate-volume-control can't bring up volume to the level bigger then set in gnome-volume-control.
(gnome-volume control also had an old bug where even set up to 100% for speakers, that won't be 100% on reboot, but could put it and volume level to 100%)
I received info from my homeboy alarcher on IRC, that it's probably for pulseaudio being r'tded.
and mixer in MATE ignores SunAudio/OSS because of pulsaudio.
-use audioctl to bring up the volume (audioctl show-control , audioctl show-device , audioctl set-control -d DeviceName volume XY )
-if still having Gnome installed, use gnome-volume-mixer
to crank up the volume.
Clever talents needed to fix this up. Peice!
