Alsa restores mixer settings on reboot


Hi,
Whenever I reboot the computer, all my sound settings are reset and I have to go and manually change them using aumix (volume and PCM).

I get no alsa related errors during bootup, but on shutdown I get this:
Code:
/dev/mixer does not exist. Please create it or load the correct modules to enable your cards mixer
I have tried running alsasound at boot and default but the problem is still there.
I checked /etc/conf.d/alsasound, and both these lines are uncommented:
Code:
RESTORE_ON_START="yes".
SAVE_ON_STOP="yes"
So does anyone know what else I can try? I'm running fluxbox btw (no gnome or kde), and I'm running alsa as a module.

Thank you
Dswissmiss

Are the alsa modules loaded in the first place?

And the next interesting thing to know would be the
kernel version you're using.
2.6.xxx
If the modules are loaded, but the mixer device doesn't
exist you probably have a problem with your udev configuration.


Cheers,
Tink

Hi, thanx for the reply!

I went through the gentoo alsa configuration docs again just to make sure everything is ok, and that seems to be the case.

Alsa modules are loaded at boot, and I use kernel 2.6.13-gentoo-r3

So it seems that it does have something to do with udev, how do I go about fixing that?

btw, /dev/mixer is a symbolic link to /dev/sound/mixer, not sure if that is important or not

thanx again
