what do you mean? I installed pulse and let it take control. alsamixer works
just fine. When alsamixer is invoked without argument, it shows pulseaudio
as audiocard. When I run it with -c 0 it shows the audiocard as when pulse
was not installed

when killing PA, kmix also goes at 100% CPU - need to quit kmix. When I
press volume key kmix starts again

Well, I appreciate your opinion, but there must be a solution, so that kmix
does not go 100% CPU. I am asking if someone has experience, or had a look
already, otherwise I have to go through kmix code or who knows what else
and write a patch.
