I used the ALSA mixer to unmute and increase the volume. Whenever I would reboot the settings would revert and I would have to unmute and increase the volume again. I tried to run the command "alsactl store" and I get the reply:
# alsactl store
alsactl: relocation error: alsactl: symbol snd_ctl_elem_info_is_tlv_readable, version ALSA_0.9 not defined in file libasound.so.2 with link time reference
I tried to run alsaconf and it worked, but when I rebooted the computer, xmms didn't even recognize my soundcard being present and I had to run alsaconf again to be able to listen to sound.
What is going on? And how can I fix it?
