Yes, kmix doesn't control the line input correctly; aumix and alsamixer
(maybe) work correctly.  Adjustments made to the line input using kmix
show up on aumix and alsamixer, but adjustments to line input made by
aumix don't show up on kmix.  There seem to be some states of line input
that can be changed by aumix but not by kmix, and possibly not even by

My version of kmix (version 2.0.1) thinks it's controlling alsa 0.9,
which isn't right for FC-2.

Any ideas?
