Main and PCM volume set to 0 at boot


Everytime i boot, my main volume and PCM volume are both set to zero.
Why is that so? How can i change it?

I am going to assume you are using alsa here...
Have a gander at "man alsactl"
You need to run:
# alsactl store

and it will write a file (/etc/asound.state by default) with your settings. Now you need to have your initscripts run:
alsactl restore

to have the settings read back in during boot.

But really, any decent distro should take care of this for you. Do you not have any alsa-related initscripts? Make sure they are being run at boot and this should be handled transparently for you.
