It seems that it still does. I do have a clean installation of Gnome 2.6.0
on Arch Linux (as provided by Arch Linux). No previous versions of Gnome
existed on that installation of Arch. I went directly for Gnome 2.6 when I
installed Arch a few weeks ago.

I can't remember the exact error now because I have since then enabled OSS,
but before doing so, the gnome-volume was always "muted" (with the red
circle around the icon) and trying to click the gnome-volume icon on the
gnome-panel would result to the alert window with the error message about
some /dev/ device not exist.

GStreamer 0.8.1 is installed and gst-register has ran on that system too.

I could try removing temporarily the OSS modules to grab a shot for you. Is
there something specific you would like me to test?
