Thanks, I had a bit of a look through that, but it didn't really help much, I've already done the stuff recommended.

What I would like to know is what alsaconf does, that's not done automatically by alsa at startup, if you just go through pressing the defaults. Is there a way to script something which does the same as alsaconf, without having to run the whole of alsaconf?

Thanks to anyone who can help.

Do you using Kde or Gnome? If kde - it may be arts problem ( suse arts is broken) or knotify.

I have the same problem, I have to run alsamixer everytime I want to hear anything. I tried alsactl store as root but it only keeps the alsamixer settings for one user not all of them, Kinda strange.

It's not an arts problem, it happens before arts has a chance to kick in, I did test it without any GUI at all, but still there was the problem.



Thanks for the tip though, I'm glad people are still trying to help. Oh well, never mind.

Do you have to run it everytime you want to hear anything, or just after every reboot?
good luck.

Hi,
You've got to disable ESD
If you're a gnome user :
Desktop->Preferences->Sound->Disable ESD

Then (once and for all)
# alsaconf
# alsactl store
# reboot
It should work fine after startup
