Hello users,

I'd like to ask the users here what would they think about changing
Pulseaudio's default flat-volumes=yes to flat-volumes=no, to prevent apps
VLC or Amarok or the sound notification popup from modyfing the master sound
level on your openSUSE distro.

So if I set master to 50% it stay's at 50% and doesn't change when I change
Amarok's volume to 100% or 20% for example. That would mean that 100% from
Amarok = 50% from master.

Thanks a lot for this post; I wasn't aware that this option exists.
(For others like me: I found it in /etc/pulse/daemon.conf)
I tried it and immediately added it to our puppet configuration.

It's a much more sane default, go for it.
