to make gvolwheel working make sure you have snd-mixer-oss module loaded:

$ sudo modprobe snd-mixer-oss

$ ls -la /dev/mixer
crw-rw----+ 1 root audio 14, 0 Jun 14 14:08 /dev/mixer

have a fun!

Good morning,

I have the same problem than gimireh & swiftgeek : Error opening mixer device /dev/mixer
I am using alsa, alsamixer is working well, amixer also. I'm in the audio group and all music programs are working.
I tried to lauch it with '-d /dev/snd/controlC0' since lsof /dev/snd/* tells me it's the device used by alsamixer and it opens well but still don't work.
Moving the cursor (pcm or master) just don't change the volume.

Sorry for above mistake [alsamixer was not working completely.],
this works
>amixer set Master 65555

But Up/Down on alsamixer doesnot work.

i have snd-pcm-oss blacklisted on my rc.conf

Does this have to do anything with my problem or this package doesnot work on pulseaudio ?
