Alsa mixer settings lost after boot,unexpected end of file
 
My sound is perfectly fine,but I lost all the alsamixer settings after a reboot.

Excecuting /etc/rc.d/rc.alsa restores back my alsamixer settings,so I think the /etc/rc.d/rc.M cause the problem.

My second problem is my rc.M seems to have problem.I noticed an error;
Unexpected end of file:line 351(The last line of the rc.M)

Here's my /etc/rc.d/rc.M;

Code:

#!/bin/sh
#
# rc.M                This file is executed by init(8) when the system is being
#                initialized for one of the "multi user" run levels (i.e.
#                levels 1 through 6).  It usually does mounting of file
#                systems et al.

# Initialize PCMCIA devices:
#
# NOTE: This used to be started near the top of rc.S so that PCMCIA devices
# could be fsck'ed along with the other drives.  This had some unfortunate
# side effects, however, since root isn't yet read-write, and /var might not
# even be mounted the .pid files can't be correctly written in /var/run and
# the pcmcia system can't be correctly shut down.  If you want some PCMCIA
# partition to be mounted at boot (or when the card is inserted) then add
# the appropriate lines to /etc/pcmcia/scsi.opts.
#
# Note that the stuff in /etc/pcmcia/ is only for 2.4.x kernels using
# 16-bit PCMCIA cards (not 32-bit Cardbus cards!).  For example, with a
# wireless card you might need to set options in /etc/pcmcia OR in
# /etc/rc.d/rc.wireless.conf, or even in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf (with
# extra options if needed for the encryption key, ESSID, etc.)

#
# /dev/hda2      /home      ext3    defaults,usrquota      1  1
#
# You'll then need to setup initial quota files at the top of the partitions
# to support quota, like this:
# touch /home/aquota.user /home/aquota.group
# chmod 600 /home/aquota.user /home/aquota.group
#
# Then, reboot to activate the system.
# To edit user quotas, use 'edquota'.  See 'man edquota'.  Also, the
# official Quota Mini-HOWTO has lots of useful information.  That can be found
# here:  /usr/doc/Linux-HOWTOs/Quota

Usage: alsactl <options> command
alsactl store
now it will store it for restore. hope it works. do it as root. make sure your file /etc/rc.d/rc.alsa is set to executable. wish you luck.
or just run as root alsaconf it will do it all.

Thank you for all your attention.

I had a similar probem and solved it by adding

Code:

192.168.56.7  nitrogen.fruttenboel  nitrogen
to /etc/hosts.

Remove the leading "." and "sh" for calling init-scripts. See if you can locate the error more accurately.
