Description Tanu Kaskinen 2011-08-01 10:04:46 UTC
The configuration file seems to be parsed correctly, but in other places in alsa-mixer.c negative volume limit values are treated as if they would signify that no volume limit has been set. There should be a separate boolean variable, "volume_limit_set", for determining whether a limit has been configured.

Is this something we need to resolve for 2.0?
Comment 2 Tanu Kaskinen 2012-02-08 23:26:50 UTC
The volume limit feature is not used much, and negative volumes from alsa are rare, so I'd say this is not something that we *need* to fix for 2.0. Fixing this should be quite easy, though...
