I have a Dell XPS M1530, and the volume is _much_ lower in Ubuntu Hardy than it is in Windows Vista. I see someone has reported the same for another laptop with the STAC 9228 audio codec at https://bugtrack.alsa-project.org/alsa-bug/view.php?id=3785.

Anyone got an idea why, and/or how I can help debug it?
