the taskbar applet should respond to changes made directly in the mixer, 
and that can be controlled outside the graphical environment, probably 
something like

alsamixer volume +1

or something.  though you'd probably want to do it that way, and through 
x, x intercepts the keyboard for nearly everything, so when x is down, 
there's no volume control, but you can have x route to the exact same 
command you use on the command line, you won't have to figure out how to 
do it two completely different ways.

i think, if you run kdeinit, you can get d-bus, the commands for d-bus 
are useful.
