When you leftclick the applet and then “Mixer”, “Settings”, “Configure Channels”; anything you can add?
Yes I can add the current stream and then I can select the stream as master channel but it only effect on current stream like amarok.
If your new motherboard has different audio hardware, do not forget to go to YaST > Hardware > Sound and reconfigure for your new hardware.
Also, if this is an openSUSE-11.4 version you may find it helpful to install the application ‘pavucontrol’ and then run ‘pavucontrol’ for superior volume control over your audio.
For what you seem to want, you should select a “Playback Device” and not a stream as the master channel, which will then alter the entire volume for the selected device. However, if you then plug in a different device (e.g. USB-Headset) you need to change the master channel again. It is horrible.
One should note that Kmix as shipped with 11.4 is pretty buggy. It is outright unusable if your language setting isnt’t English. A patch for those who compile themselves is available (probably becomes part of KDE SC4.6.3).
I had a clean install, I think support of ALSA on VIA audio chips is weak because I have no problem on Creative X-Fi and Realtek chips.

What if he removes pulse audio completely? This is what I have done (for different reasons, though).
Then one loses superior volume control.
