Sound low on system start


I have installed yoper recently, and it is the first time i have bothered with a sound card. Yoper got the sound working with ALSA nice and quick, but for some reason every time i reboot the sound levels reset to really low.

I have to manually increase the master volume, and the mic capture volume in the volume control - is there any way to get it to save the levels i had set, or a way to make the levels increase automatically at startup?

If you have aumix add this command to your /etc/rc.local. This will set volume to 75%

aumix -v75 -S
