Description Till Schäfer 2012-08-30 19:17:29 UTC
When modifying the master volume in alsamixer the volume drops directly from 16% to 0%. It is not possible to select a volume between this values. that means it is not possible to listen on low volume to sounds. 

this drop was first noticed when using pulseaudio, but even when disabling pulseaudio, the same problem persists with direct alsa. 

The audio Device is: 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 02)

alsamixer tells me: 
Card: HDA Intel
Chip: SigmaTel STAC9205

Using stable alsa 


Reproducible: Always
