Cannot save alsa configuration


Hi, here is my problem:

I installed alsa driver etc. and everything works fine, but every time i start a new session i have to run alsamixer or type as root alsactl restore to have sound.
Why does it not save it with alsactl store? Am i missing to edit any file?
Thank you.

Thank you bnice.
I did what you post me, but the problem still exists.
Running alsamixer after startx does not restore nothing.
There exists two alsa configurations: one as user with Master muted and PCM 100%, and the root one with PCM muted and Master ok.
I don't know how to fix it.
It seems it load alsa config from.... i don't know
It discard /etc/rc.d/rc.local.

the simplest way should be you run as root
alsaconf
and then when you have set up the desired volume levels
alsactl store.
I don't remember if slack 9.0 automatically restore alsamixer, 9.1 does by /etc/rc.d/rc.alsa.
No ideas on Debian.
Anyway if you do not have any script automatically restoring alsamixer put
alsactl restore
in your /etc/rc.d/rc.local making sure it is executable.
Ciao
