What is the ouptut if you were to open a command prompt and run:
rpm -qa | grep phonon
% rpm -qa \*phonon\*
Does the same thing happen if you create a fresh test user and then
try to configure kmix? If it does, then it sounds like this is more of
alsa issue then a kde issue?
With a test user everything seems to work. In fact the device options
list is different. See my reply to Kevin.
