i just tried to run sndconfig and the terminal returned that the command was not found. i am using kde to answer your first question (even though i said the problem was at boot so i don't know why my x manager matters) but i have no clue what etc, etc? could be asking...
also... as for unmuting...
alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such device
i receive that message when i try to run alsamixer... so i assume that because it cannot configure my soundcard at boot, then it cannot load alsamixer.
