Wrong package.  That one's to do with disk drive volume managing
(removeable drives, etc.).  You want to play with the RPM that I
mentioned earlier on:  gnome-media

How to work it out:
[tim at gonzales ~]$ which gnome-volume-control

[tim at gonzales ~]$ rpm -q --whatprovides /usr/bin/gnome-volume-control

I did that on FC5, so ignore the version numbers, but the package name
is the same.

(This box runs FC5, my others run FC4 & FC6, in case that's
 important to the thread.)

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
