Alsa issue


I just recently installed Slackware 10.1 and every time I reboot, I have to go in and unmute and redo all of my settings in alsa.

Now after I always do: #alsactl store but it never saves my settings. There is obviously something I missed and I was hoping that someone could help me out.

Are you by any chance using KDE? It stores it's own mixer settings, do a search on this forum and you'll get a answer.

Is /etc/rc.d/rc.alsa executable?

Thanks

I would assume so ... Sound works after I adjust settings and unmute stuff, sound will work just fine.

rc.alsa is in charge of loading modules and settings on startup. If it's not executable maybe you can't notice that because the sound modules would likely be loaded by hotplug.
Check the permission with: ls -l /etc/rc.d/rc.alsa

Well my problem was solved (sorta) ... if I run a alsactl restore after I boot up everything is fine ... which then equates to hotplug over-writing the file as the link provided suggests. The simple script in that link should fix my problem.

Mow, you could try adding that line (alsactl restore) to /etc/rc.d/rc.local that's executed.
