there seems to be another issue as adding CFLAGS gets me no further than:

Please add the following line before make to fix the build:

CFLAGS+=' -fcommon'

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.
